Situated at the foot of the Mount Ventoux, the vineyard extends from south to west of the mountain range. 51 communities make up the Appellation area and are all located in the Vaucluse county.
The soils date back to the Tertiary Era : hard limestone, fallen earth as well as ancient alluvial soils with rounded pebbles. Benefiting from maximum sunshine, protected from strong Mistral winds, the different soils transmit specific characteristics to the wine.
The Côtes du Ventoux wines became appellation wines on July 23, 1973.
