Chateau Pinenc is located in the Languedoc. Have you heard about the Origin of the name “Languedoc”:
The “Langue d’oc” was the version of French spoken in the south of the country, and Languedoc referred to the part of France in which the “language of Oc” was spoken. “Oc” (from the Latin ac ) was the word for “yes” in this part of France, at a time when people in the north of France said “oeuil”, an old French word that has become modern French “oui”. Today, the “langue d’oc” survives in the many patois still spoken by a few people in rural areas of this part of France.
The new regional name Occitanie is another reference to the historic language of “Oc”.
