The best wines from the largest wine-growing region in France
Bearer of 3 Protected Designations of Origin and 5 Protected Geographical Indications, this area is unique and proud of its large and diverse terroirs, including volcanic, sandstone, limestone, sandy and shingle soils. The influence of the seaside creates fresh, supple and elegant wines, whilst the heath inspires the wines further inland, which are full-bodied, strong and generous. Discover our wines and meet our wine-growers during dedicated wine events, during the markets, in the estates or through a vineyard stroll.
