The Dordogne, the river that crosses the region and shares its name, allowed vineyards planted by the Romans and developed by monks in the Middle Ages to spread out. Ideally situated on the slopes of the Dordogne valley, sheltered from the influence of the ocean, the vineyards benefit from a particularly favourable climate giving rise to pleasurable, elegant and authentic wines, given variety and richness by the diversity of the landscapes.

It was as early as the 1st century BC that the Romans gave the name of Aquitaine to this region, anchored between the Atlantic coast and the northern slopes of the Pyrenees, sheltered by the ancient volcanoes of the Massif Central. An inland region, the Dordogne department is one of the largest in France. Of rare diversity, its large valleys, its havens, its uncountable watercourses and forests thus welcomed Homo sapiens and made Périgord the cradle of civilisation. Haut Vignac symbolises the upstream river, and by extension origin and creation.
