The Future of Vins de Pays

Some areas have already proved themselves to the point that they have been promoted, or moved side-ways, to the lists of VDQS and AOC wines. This implies that a certain style has been established, and that the wine is suitable for the more rigid rules of the senior grades. Other vins de pays may well fade away as no--one finds it sensible to use them. The amount of wine which could be vin de pays but is labelled vin de table -about half the total - shows that not all growers feel that the current sys-tem suits their needs.
