This is a fine print reproduction of a colorful vintage poster-map, originally printed by the French government to promote sales of French Cognac.
The grapes used for Cognac brandy must always come from a specific region of France, which covers the Charente-Maritime, a large part of the Charente, and some smaller parts of Deux-Sevres, and the famous Dordogne. This specific area is color coded on the map on the west coast of France, with the various colors shown and defined in a legend in the upper left quadrant of the map.
