Troussepinette refers to a apéritif made from blackthorn shoots; a 100% Vendéen apéritif made from hedgerow fruits. Troussepinette is one of the local wine specialties of Vendee, a department located in the Pays-de-la-Loire region in west-central France, on the Atlantic Ocean.

Wine has been produced in the southern Vendée since Roman times, a wine-making tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. Vendee has several wine-growing areas, namely: Brem, Mareuil, Pissotte, Vix and Chantonnay which produce excellent reds, whites and rosés, marketed under the "Fiefs Vendéens" label. On February 2011, they received the national AOC label.
