The soils in the Languedoc-Roussillon region vary according to the AOC and IGP scheme. From vineyards to vineyards one can find vast pebble terraces, sandstone clay, calcareous clay, limestone and shale, clayey soils, sandy soils, representing a valuable asset for promoting the quality of the wines. We can distinguish the composition of soil near the coast (alluvial soils) from limestone and gravel based soils inland. Poor soils are a common characteristic of the region, which forces the roots digging down very deeply to get water and nutrients.
