Fiefs Vendéens, small, oceanic aoc zone south of the Muscadet zone near the mouth of the Loire, qualified by one of the communes Brem, Chantonnay, Mareuil, Pissotte, or Vix, each with its own permitted encépagement. Most wines are red, from Cabernet Franc, Négrette, and Pinot Noir but there are rosés, often with Gamay, and some whites based on Chenin Blanc.
