In a recent tracking news release, Imports of Languedoc AOP wines reported “much growth” over the past seven years. Since 2009, imports of Languedoc wines into the U.S. have grown 280% by volume and the 2016 import figures show 29% volume growth over 2015, outpacing every French AOP category except Provence. Much of the growth can be attributed to AOP Languedoc Rouge/Rosé wines, which are up 62% by volume.
