One of the seven major regional IGP areas for the production of country wines in France. The other six are Atlantique, Comtés Rhodaniens, Comté Tolosan, Pays d'Oc, Terres du Midi and Val de Loire. It was created in 1999 under the name Vin de pays Portes de Méditerranée and renamed in 2009 to its current name Méditerranée (Mediterranean). The area comprises the eight départements of Alpes de Haute-Provence, Alpes Maritimes, Ardèche, Bouches-du-Rhône, Drôme, Hautes-Alpes, Var and Vaucluse in the south-east of mainland France, as well as the two départements of Corse-du-Sud and Haute-Corse on the island of Corsica, which were added later.
