    Winery Overview

    Les Vignerons de Tautavel Vingrau (VTV) cooperative is in the village of Tautavel. Produced at Les Vignerons de Tautavel Vingrau: Le Cirque - named after the vast, amphitheatre-shaped bowl of vineyards stretching north towards Vingrau, the wines represent phenomenal values, and perfectly reflect the rugged, wind-swept terroir in which they are grown.
