Cave de l'Ormarine is an award-winning co-operative which produces wines from the tiny Pinet de Picpoul appellation in the Hérault. The Ormarine cellar was established in 1922 when winegrowers from Pinet joined forces and formed a winegrowers’ association. Its flagship Picpoul wines are fresh and terroir-driven, and hugely influenced by both the Mediterranean Sea and the Etang de Thau, which act as a thermal regulator for the vineyards. Cave de l'Ormarine has made significant investment in its winery, and prides itself on the high standard and traceability of its grapes.
