Eastern Occitanie’s IGP/PGI* regions

While the western part of Occitanie appears to have a greater landmass, it’s the eastern part that has the highest production.

IGP Comté Tolosan englobes the entire region of Southwest France and has an annual production of 165,000 hectoliters (around 22 million bottles/year), which is impressive. However this pales in comparison with IGP Pays d’Oc with its annual production of over 6,5 million hectoliters (+866 millions bottles/year). Every second, 24 bottles of IGP Pays d’Oc are sold in the world!

Below are the 22 IGP/PGI (Protect Geographic Indication) sub régions found in historic Languedoc-Roussillon, eastern Occitanie, which account for an additional 125 million bottles/year.
