Local products

We celebrate wine and olives here. And the truffle too of course.  We savour and revel in the products of our terroir all year round.

Our terroir provides produce emblematic of French gastronomy. Our producers have elevated their savoir-faire to the rank of a culinary art.

The vineyards of the Coteaux du Pont du Gard, the Cevennes (PGI) and the famous AOP Duché d’Uzès extend as far as the eye can see. Our soils and climate favour the production of unique wines made from the most famous Mediterranean grape varieties.

The picholine is our star olive. Intense green, crisp and fresh, you will see them in all sorts of establishments from local bistros to gourmet restaurants.

A treasure of French gastronomy, the Black Truffle of the Pays d’Uzès and Pont du Gard, obtained the prestigious national label Site Remarquable du Goût (Remarkable Tasting Site) in 2016.
