Domaine de Cibadiès

A buffer against storms


The hill is famous for its fierce lightning storms. As a buffer against their intensity, Pierre Paul Riquet himself invented and designed the weirs at Capestang during building work on the Canal du Midi. Pegasus, the winged horse and master of storms in mythology, has been the emblem and protector of our estate since time immemorial.

IGP Pays d'Oc

Grown between the Mediterranean and the mountains, IGP Pays d’Oc varietal wines cover an extensive sun-kissed area from the Camargue to the Vermillion Coast, in the heart of France’s largest wine region which is also renowned for its appellation wines.  

Its climate promotes healthy vines. The IGP Pays d’Oc production area covers the length and breadth of Languedoc-Roussillon:

  • France’s third most sunny region
  • Home to garrigue moorland, pine forests, olive groves, lush meadows, oaks and strawberry trees
  • Promoting synergy with nature
  • Buffeted by 4 regional winds
  • Boasting good soil and weather conditions

Pays d’Oc is such an extensive wine region that it is naturally home to an extraordinary range of soil types, that can vary from sandy terrain along the coast to limestone, schist, clay or stony gravel on the valley floors and hillsides.
