Alpes-de-Haute-Provence is an IGP in the mountainous region in the southern foothills of the Alps, vineyards here are scattered among the hills and valleys. The department lies along France’s border with Italy, between the Mediterranean coast and the continental region of Savoie.

The climate has characteristics of the Mediterranen, but is moderated significantly by the presence of the Alps and the high altitude of which vineyards are predominately found. Hot, sunny summer days are followed by much cooler nights as air from the Alps descends into the vineyards. As a result, wines from Alpes-de-Haute-Provence are lighter and more aromatic than the richer, more supple wines from lower-lying vineyards to the south. Alpes-de-Haute-Provence is one of Provence’s least windy departments, as it is protected from harsh weather systems from the north by the Alps. Instead, warm foehn winds are generated by the mountains, and cool sea breezes from the Mediterranean keep the vine canopies moving, reducing disease pressure.
