The region is influenced by the warm Mediterranean climate, however the altitude of 400 metres above sea level tempers the heat, bringing cool nights which imparts natural acidity to the grapes. The Mistral winds breeze through the vineyards helping to keep the vines healthy. These conditions are favourable for sustainable viticultural practices, which respect the environment and biodiversity. Treatments are conventional, but minimal and mostly copper. The remarkable variation in terroirs enables the varieties to thrive in a particular soil type, with Syrah and Grenache flourishing in soils distinguished by the round pebbles in plots bordering the Rhone River and on the karst limestone of the Plateau des Gras, which forms the AOC Cotes du Vivarais. The AOC specifies how the vines are cultivated; the Guyot pruning method is forbidden, instead Cordon de Royat is preferred, along with foliage wires. Old Grenache vines are pruned into Gobelet bush vines. The vines are planted at a density of 4,000 vines per hectare and the grapes are hand-harvested at dawn to preserve the freshness.

Since 1967, Vignerons Ardéchois has pioneered terroir-driven winemaking in the Ardéche region. Representing 14 wineries, the vineyard area covers 6,000 hectares over a diverse range of terroirs, from the sandstone of the Cevennes foothills to the pebbly soils of the Rhône Valley. The winegrower families work the vineyards with passion, respect for nature and for humanity, striving for the perfect balance between the hand of man and the expression of soil. The wine takes its name after the Aven
d’Orgnac, a natural cave discovered in 1935, which is a masterpiece of nature, both in size and the diversity of its geological formations.
