Cave de L'Ormarine wine
The more recent history of the Cave Cooperative de Pinet (wine cooperative in Pinet) in the Languedoc region began with the wine growers reaffirming their common interest and mutual support. On 30 May and 15 June 1922 two letters arrived from the Ministry of Agriculture officialising the creation of the “Traditional Pinet White Wine Producers' Association” and the Cooperative Winery. In 1992, to mark its 70th anniversary, the cooperative officially launched its Cave de l'Ormarine commercial brand name , which was followed by the creation of the Cave de l'Ormarine public limited company, which went on to obtain the Picpoul de Pinet AOC. Today the wineries in Cournonterral, Pinet and Villeveyrac are included in the cooperative. 

The Pinet wine growers were the forerunners in the vinification and marketing of Picpoul de Pinet. This wine is made from a noble grape variety originally called Piquant-Paul, Picapulla, and then Piquepouille, and is today known as Piquepoul. The Cave de l'Ormarine now includes nearly 400 cooperative growers working 2,100 hectares, of which a large proportion is for the white AOC from the "Piquepoul" single varietal. The terroir is mainly made up of clay-limestone plateaux, rich in Cretaceous limestone and packed with quartz gravel. To the north, these are dominated by limestone hills dating from the Jurassic Period. The Mediterranean-type climate is accentuated by lower rainfall and higher temperatures than the French national average which play an important role in the health of the grapes.
