This large appellation is situated mainly in the Camargue on sandy and stony alluvial deposits of the Rhône river banks.

Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild winters. The mountains that are near to the sea trigger violent thunderstorms. This accounts for much of the annual rainfall. The relatively cold mistral can cool and dry the region.
