TERROIR & CLIMATE

The territory of the Protected Geographical Indication (IGP) is like certain of its wines, concentrated within an area of about forty kilometers. The stony soil is dominated by limestone, corresponding to the watersheds of the Eygues and Ouvèze, of sedimentary origin.

It is the topography that gives the Coteaux des Baronnies all of their particular characteristics. With an average altitude of 600 metres, the relief is hilly, wild and rugged.

Agriculture is predominant in the local economy. Alongside vine-growing, arboriculture and mixed farming, in the broad sense of the term, play an important role. Orchards, vineyards, olive groves and fields of lavender cut the countryside up into a mosaic of different tones and textures.
