Caramany is a small village and wine region in the Roussillon mountains, on the slope of the Pyrenees. The production is dominated by one cooperative, which produces most of the wine in the appellation. It is one of the wine villages that can use the Côtes du Roussillon Villages appellation. Nearby we find the curiously named Latour de France area and a little further north across the border to the Languedoc, we have Fitou.

It is a mountainous region with many beautiful views over the mountaintops, as well as over the lake, which is an artificially created dam (Barrage d’Agly). The grape varieties are mainly traditional southern grapes: carignan, grenache, and syrah. The vineyards are on the hillsides on more or less steep slopes. The soil in the vineyards is often very poor with schist and gneiss.
