The bassin de Thau is an extraordinary natural site next to the Mediterranean. Shellfish aquaculture, angling and vines form the basis of its unique identity. The Thau area offers a great diversity of landscapes between the étang de Thau and the Gardiole massif.
The Thau wine-producing landscapes were shaped by Roman know-how. Numerous ruins bear witness to their passage. The 90 jars of the storehouse at the Gallo-Roman Villa in Loupian illustrate the importance of wine-producing activity in the region.
The Romans appreciated vines for their virtues as a food but also for their symbolic character. The ancient Mediterranean garden traces their habits and customs.
