Why MidiVines? – the name itself comes from le Midi which is the name given to the South of France, and once coupled with Vines, gives birth to the divine!
For us normal people, born closer to the wine glass than the wine barrel, and endlessly curious and fascinated by wine, Languedoc is recognized worldwide as an innovative and exploratory wine playground.
We are in love with the most exciting French wine producing region for a few reasons:
...An old vine growing heritage, even older than the Romans...
“Let’s invade the South of Gaul! My cousin told me that they have been producing amazing wine for centuries over there too!” - Roman General Maximus Drunkus – 124 BC
...A large variety of terroir and products...
“One reason why I like the Languedoc so much is that it produces the full gamut of wine styles” - MW Jancis Robinson
...Excellent value wine...
“The Languedoc is a diamond in the rough and continues to be an incredible source of high-quality wines, as well as terrific values” - Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate - 2017
“What the hell!?” - Benedictine monk finding bubbles in his wine for the first time – 1531
“Sustainability is [...] at the heart of what we do here, using the savoir-faire and innovative methods of our winemakers” - Miren De Lorgeril, CIVL Languedoc President – 2018
So much variety is available in Languedoc, we can be sure there is a wine to suit everyone!
We are pleased to be presenting the most acclaimed selections of the region to our fellow Australian wine enthusiasts.

Languedoc-Roussillon stretches from the Rhone Valley in the east to the Spanish border in the south. It is dominated by more than 300,000 hectares of vineyards, making it France’s largest producing wine region. It has been estimated that one in every 10 bottles in the world produced in the 20th century originated from here.
