What is a PDO ?
The PDO (protected designation of origin) label guarantees quality and promises authenticity. More than just a simple label, PDO captures the identity of a region and the traditions that go along with it. At Château Virant, we are proud of our roots anchored in Aix-en-Provence. The PDO designation lets us assert our identity; the wines and oils of Château Virant are above all Provençal products. All of our PDO labeled products are grown and processed in the heart of Provence, which is so dear to us. We are happy to highlight this region which has seen us grow. This label shows people around the world that our products are authentically sourced and processed. Gourmets know the protected designation of origin label ensures quality products.
PDOs from France and from around the world
There are several hundred PDOs in France, 120 of which are spread between Bordeaux and Burgundy. The Haut-Médoc, Saint-Emilion, or the Pessac-Léognan PDO labels guard the elegance and power of Bordeaux wines. In Burgundy, you will find fine gourmet wines under the PDO label Côte de Beaune and dry white wines with sharp minerality vinified under the Chablis PDO. Protected designation of origin labels are also widely used across Europe. We find the PDO Santorini in Greece and the PDO Andalucia in Spain. Each of these labels is distinguished by the select grape varieties it uses, its winemaking methods, and of course its native soil. Château Virant, anchored in its land and its region, produces wines and oils on the Aix-en-Provence PDO. This means that we use grape varieties cultivated historically in our region and that our approach aims to preserve ancestral expertise. PDO is the label which guarantees respect for traditions and authenticates production.
