Like the Languedoc, it has been a home to viticulture since the Roman times. Here, the climate is more continental thanks to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean.

Two different kinds of terroirs are distinguishable, near the coast the soil is sandy and rainfall is high, whereas the east has warm and dry summers with clay limestone soils.
