  • About

St-Saturnin, one of the more exciting of the named red wine crus within the languedoc AOC in southern France named after the eponymous village but including parts of St-Guiraud, Jonquières, and Arboras. Just west of montpeyroux, this zone is also in high, rugged country where little other than the vine will grow. The St-Saturnin co-operative is particularly dynamic, as are some individual producers.
