Domaine La Font des Ormes is located in Caux, in the region of Pézenas, in the Languedoc, in a special valley bordered by two basalt flows.
AOP Pézenas-Languedoc is a triangle of about 24 km on each side, pointing downwards, and bounded on the east by the Hérault River, which flows from north to south. In the north, the terroir is sheltered by the Montagne Noire and in the southwest it is an extension of Biterrois. The altitude varies between 0 and 300 m and vines can be found at all altitudes.
Font des Ormes is located in an environment of olive and pine trees, in Caux on the road to Nizas in AOC Pézenas, at the foot of two basalt flows. Their ambition is to express the full potential of this exceptional terroir.
