, a department in the Languedoc region of southern France, probably offers the most diverse range of IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) wines, which account for almost two thirds of the region's vineyards. Wines grown in the Hérault may be Vin de Pays de l'Hérault
or carry the overlapping appellation Vin de Pays d'Oc. There are also delimited subregional IGPs here: Val de Montferrand, Mont Baudile, Monts de la Grage, Coteaux d'Enserune, Coteaux du Libron, Coteaux de Murviel, Coteaux de Laurens, Côtes de Thongue, la Bénovie, Cassan, Coteaux du Salagou, and others.
The red wines of the Hérault are made from traditional Mediterranean grape varieties such as Carignan, Syrah, Cinsault, and Grenache, as well as other varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. There are also quite a few grapes used for white wines, including Grenache Blanc, Maccabeu, and Terret, as well as Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Viognier. Some of the appellation's best wines come from producers like Domaine Mas Cal Demoura, Domaine Les Clos du Serres, Domaine Mas de Daumas Gassac, Mas Julien, and Domaine du Pas de l'Escalette.
