History & Geography
Ventoux AOC is located in the southeastern region of the Rhône wine region of France, where the wines are produced in 51 communes of the Vaucluse département along the lower slopes of the Ventoux mountain and at the foot of the Vaucluse Mountains. The Provençal climate of AOC Ventoux wines is Mediterranean. The sun is a fundamental part of it. The sky is more intensely blue, fragrances are enhanced, colours are magnified. The sun shines between 2,700 and 2,900 hours a year in Provence; as early as May, vineyards as well as olive and almond trees get a record amount of sunshine. The Mistral wind is inseparable from the land of AOC Ventoux wines. It bends trees, and urges the local ’Comtadins’ to protect their homes and crops against it. It also prevents dampness, drying vineyards and plantations in record time.
