Its radiant vines, gorged with sunshine, extend over 200 kilometres through the departments of Var, Bouches-du-Rhône and part of the Alpes-Maritimes. To these two geological units, limestone and crystalline, correspond two plant formations characteristic of the Mediterranean: the garrigue on limestone soil and the maquis on crystalline soil. The Mediterranean climate is perfect: sunny, dry and warm. The vines receive about 2800 hours of sunshine per year. The winds are numerous and are an integral part of the region’s climate. The most violent and most famous is the Mistral. Particularly dry, it refreshes the vineyard, but above all cleans it, protecting it from moisture-related diseases.
