The terraced fields around Mont Aigoual


Four different French ministries, in charge of Culture, Tourism, Environment and Agriculture, came together to create the concept they established in 1995, in creating a list of 100 Remarkable Good Taste Sites which distinguish a food product that is strongly anchored in and symbolic of a given geographical territory. The product also benefits from a strong reputation, long history and exceptional heritage. Its positive impact on the environment and on architecture is also explained. The public can thus learn about the connections between the product, cultural heritage, the surrounding landscapes and the work of man.

The product – this is the only sweet onion which conserves naturally with no need for any anti-sprouting treatment. The onion is sweet, mild and juicy. It is sowed in early winter, transplanted in the spring and harvested in the summer. The work is done manually to preserve the quality of the onion, which was covered by an AOC distinction in 2003, and the AOP distinction in 2008.
From mid-August to mid-April, it is available in the markets and shops. It is featured on the menus in restaurants, tables d'hôtes and with Michelin-starred chefs. It is served both raw and cooked and goes into the preparation of many other dishes, all year long.

The territory where the famous Cevennes AOP sweet onion grows is located in the heart of the southern Cevennes in the Gard, at the base of Mont Aigoual.
Onions are grown in terraced fields carved out by man since the Middle Ages. Production reflects traditional savoir-faire that is continued today by 120 growers. The dry, hot and sunny climate, and many natural springs that have been channeled for irrigation purposes all combined to allow this crop to develop. With over a thousand terraced fields entitled to the AOP distinction, production of the sweet onion has fashioned the landscapes in this area for centuries.

The network of the Ambassadors for this Remarkable Good Taste Site includes tourism professionals and growers who commit to providing you with a special welcome, genuine contact and deeper understanding of this product, in restaurants, gourmand outings and apéritifs in this area.
