  It is no surprise that the Pyrenees mountain range shares its name with the ruggedly beautiful area that divides France and Spain – sweeping vistas, a temperate climate and passion for pétanque offer similarities that go way beyond the name.

A southern extension of the Great Dividing Range, the Pyrenees foothills and ranges create a remarkable diversity of microclimates that provide a wealth of variety for winemakers. The 44 vineyards in the region grow about 25 varieties of grapes, but the Pyrenees’ strength and reputation lies in its savoury, spicy reds and in particular, premium cabernet sauvignon. Chardonnay and sauvignon blanc also respond beautifully to the soils and climate here.

The area is also home to many local producers of quality produce including, lamb, olives, capers and much more.
