Between the Mediterranean Sea and the Berre pond, at the confines of the Nerthe massif, is located the Venise Provençale’s terroir.
The vineyard stretches on almost 494 acres, mainly Located in the geological collapsing sump of Saint Pierre, in Saint Julien.
A few plots of land are still cultivated on the municipalities of Châteauneuf-Les-Martigues, Saint Mitre les Remparts and Sausset les Pins.
The majority of the plots are benefitting from the PDO Coteaux (hillside) d’Aix-en-Provence, with a small part in PGI Méditerranée (Mediterranean).
