Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet appellation in the Hérault. Relatively recently incorporated in 1992, its history dates back to 1922. Cave de l'Ormarine has made significant investment in the winery, and prides itself on the high standard and traceability of its grapes. Today Picpoul de Pinet is enjoying a surge in popularity worldwide and Cave de l'Ormarine is considered one of the foremost producers.
Picpoul vines grow just inland from the Étang de Thau, home to southern Languedoc's famous oyster and mussel beds. Along the coast you'll find cabins where locals gather to feast on mussels or 'huitres braisees' (oysters cooked over a fire pit) which are perfect with a glass of Duc de Morny Picpoul de Pinet.
