La Livinière owes its name to the occitan word "vinièra", meaning "vine"
The birthplace of one of the very first village A.O.C.s in the Languedoc: Minervois-La Livinière
At an altitude of 130m, 600 Liviniérois(es) live in this village.
Here, vines have always played a dominant role, ever since the Romans.
Perched on a promontory, at the bottom of the last foothills of the Causse de Saint-Julien-de-Molières, La Livinière is also famous throughout the Minervois thanks to Notre-Dame-du-Spasme.
Situated at the entrance of the village, this church houses a 15th century stone statue of the failing virgin; on her shoulders are two hands that seem to support her.
In addition to the remains of the feudal castle, the church of Saint Etienne and its square domed bell tower, the covered market square and the old fountain contribute to the charm of this village.
