The Saint Mont vineyard area stretches out over hill country that leads up towards the Pyrenees, overlooking valleys where the River Adour flows through some of the best preserved landscape in South-West France.
This location near to the Pyrenees, combined with the influence of the Atlantic, gives a special stamp to the climate prevailing in the Saint Mont vineyards.
A fairly high winter rainfall, mild damp springs and hot summers, followed by sunny autumns when the difference between day and night-time temperatures is very big, enable the grapes to ripen perfectly, particularly the local varieties, Tannat and the Mansengs.
Much more recently, in the 1970s, the SAINT MONT vineyards were entirely remodelled in the pursuit of quality.
This renovation was instigated by a group of passionately committed winegrowers led by André Dubosc, the founder of the Producteurs Plaimont Cooperative Winery.
