Domaine Morin Langaran
Near the Bassin de Thau and running along the Via Domitia, Domaine Morin Langaran has existed since 1330. Then, it belonged to the Order of the Knights of the Holy Spirit.
During the religious wars, monks abandoned their possession and families to ensure its upkeep. François Engarran acquired and gave it its current name in 1595.
The estate stayed in the Engarran family until 1652. At the end of the First French Empire and with the rise in popularity of Picpoul, the life and wines of the estate expanded rapidly.
In 1896 and 1897, the Despetis family represented Domaine de Langaran for Picpoul and Clairette. Legend has it that the Empress Eugénie tried to buy this property as a secondary home.
In 1966 the Morin family became owners of the estate. After her father Albert, Caroline, a young and dynamic winemaker, brings out the best of this excellent terroir in wines with much finesse and a lovely minerality.
Situated near the Etang de Thau and the Mediterranean Sea, this estate features Vins de Pays and IGP Pays d’Oc wines, as well as the famous AOP Picpoul de Pinet.

“As winemaker and with limited time, it’s not easy to wear multiple hats at the same time. Sales is a totally different ballgame, and export a specialty in and of itself. I’ve been working with Les Vins Alexander Krossa for 5 years, which has opened me up to export. Besides finding clients for my wines, the whole team has helped me with all the administrative procedures. Decisions are always made together with the aim of entering durable markets. I appreciate their availability, their professionalism, and thanks to them I am present in new markets.” -- Caroline Morin
