The wine comes from sun-drenched vineyards planted on the best terroir, selected for its physical and geographical characteristics, on clay and limestone hillsides called “costières” (coastal region), only a few miles away from the Etang de Thau - a coastal lagoon that is situated between the port of Sète and Marseillan.
