Bordered along the whole of its west coast by the Atlantic
Ocean, Aquitaine is bathed in a mild oceanic climate with the influence of
the Gulf Stream.
As you can see in the table below showing average temperatures, the whole year is mild in Aquitaine…
The 2,200 sunshine hours per year make the Bordeaux region similar to the Mediterranean. Along with rainfall that is well distributed over the year, this sunshine is one of the elements which favour vine-growing in Aquitaine.
Mild temperatures all year round, enough rain to provide a green, floral environment, plenty of sunshine to enjoy the delights of the beach in spring, summer and autumn, as well as walking in the mountains or in the wooded valleys…
This is the wonderful programme that awaits you in Aquitaine.
