At Pézenas, a city of art and history in the Pays d’Oc dear to French playwright Molière, savour the famous local pâté accompanied by the region’s best rosés.

Enter the Pays d’Oc district. Make a stop at Pézenas, which has been classified as a City of Art and History since 1950. In this city dear to French playwright Molière, the narrow alleyways decorated with stalls cast a spell over the visitor. Taste the famous petit pâté of Pézenas, imported in the thirteenth century by the Indian cooks of Lord Clive, viceroy of India, who stayed in the city. For an appetizer, this sweet and savoury lamb preparation goes well with the Pays d’Oc rosés, particularly those made from Syrah and Grenache grape varieties.
