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.
