The Vienne department is in the region of Poitou-Charentes. The name of the department comes from the Vienne River and the area benefits from an interesting location that is not far from the Atlantic but also close to the centre of France.

Poitiers is the main town of the French department, with its massive theme park attraction.

The countryside is made up of rolling hills and the climate is mild, similar to the Aquitaine which is considered one of the best climates in France, with mild summers and soft winters. The proximity of the sea and the mild climate play a major role in the wine growing industry.
