In order to become part of the “Languedoc Coeur d’Hérault” network, actors need to meet and respect the criteria specific to each sector and which are inherent to the “Vignobles et Découvertes” label. These include:
♦For wineries and cooperatives: subscribe to a quality label such as “Bienvenue à la Ferme”, “Qualité Sud de France” etc. or be part of the Quality Tourism brand
♦For accommodation providers: be classified or subscribe to a quality procedure if not classified (e.g. bed and breakfasts)
♦For restaurants: propose a significant number of local wines on their wine list and a menu translated into a foreign language
♦For heritage sites: propose appropriate visits in at least one foreign language
♦For leisure activities: be able to speak at least one foreign language
The complete list of criteria by sector can be obtained from the Pays Coeur d’Hérault offices of local tourist offices.
The collective approach led by the Pays Coeur d’Hérault associates all the players that participate in promoting the territory and allows a complete wine tourism package to be proposed. These include:
♦Wine cooperatives and private wineries
♦Restaurants and wine bars
♦Accommodation providers (hotels, gîtes, bed and breakfasts, campsites etc.)
♦Heritage sites (cultural, natural, intangible, gastronomic etc.)
♦Leisure, sports, well-being, health activities
♦Wine tourism events
♦And also locals, politicians, partners etc.
Participation in this approach is free and voluntary for professionals who wish to become partners. But they must commit to participating actively in the actions organized by their local network.
The « Vignobles et Découvertes » label was created in 2009 and is granted for a 3-year period by Atout France, following recommendation by the Conseil Supérieur de l’Oenotourisme (Wine tourism advisory board). It is given to tourist and winemaking destinations that offer a range of tourist products that complement each other (accommodation, food, wine-tasting, museums, events etc.) and which allow visitors to organize their stay easily and be guided to qualified service providers.
The label “Vignobles et Découvertes” is a collective brand that is strictly regulated.
