About the Vin de Pays Classification
There are about 150 different Vin de Pays appellations in France for each area of origin. A country wine production zone is much larger than an AOC. Winemakers must use specific grape varieties suggested by a "Conseil Interprofessionnel" (joint committee of professionals). These wines can list on the label the grape varieties used while AOC wines cannot. All wines are analyzed, tasted and eventually approved. and accepted as "Vin de Pays".
These wines are increasingly popular, better quality than Vin de Table and perfect for daily-drinking wines.
