In 1789, there were 4,000 hectares of vineyards in Brioude and its region. 100 years later, the area of vineyards had doubled in size.

Of the 2,770 hectares of the Commune of Vieille-Brioude, 450 were covered with vineyards. It was said at the time that between Brioude and Vieille-Brioude, "one could not toss his hat without it landing on a vine stock".

Of this heritage, which contributed greatly to the area's livelihood, only a few vineyards remain today, maintained by the last enthusiasts.
