The village of Montpeyroux, is at the foot of the Massif Central, it's good access via the ‘col du vent' meant that the Massif Central was a natural market for its wines. This is borne out by the accounts held by Raymond Fobis. Each entry shows the destination of his wines, the majority was despatched to Aveyron, Cantal and Correze. Also as far a field as Paris and Haute Savoie. Raymond also produced Verdigris for treating vines.
