Bacchus, ancient Greek and Roman god of wine and revelry, in creating the soil of the Charentes, undoubtedly wanted to make people envious! Here, in the country of the Atlantic Coast Land, there is truly land well designed to produce wines for feasts: generous sun for ripening the vine, the sea spray to forge the character of the grape and a ground just hardy enough to rough out its strength; the wines of the Charentes Country are the happy fruits of this Atlantic Coast Land! In the past, the wine growers of the Charentes processed their products into spirits. Today, they have happily rediscovered wine growing for wine production. Helped along by all the latest techniques of wine production, the production of white, rosé and red wine meets strict quality criteria defined by the Wine Tasting Commission, in order to obtain the geographical denomination: Vin de Pays Charentais.
