HIKE “VINEYARDS AND THE YON VALLEY”
This trail will enable you to discover a product of the Mareuillais country, wine!
Throughout this itinerary, you can taste AOC (Appellation d'Origine Controlée) wines from our winegrowers, through the vines with changing colors according to the seasons.
The vineyard covers 320 ha, including 240 ha in Rosnay.
The wines of the Fiefs Vendéens are light and aromatic wines.
From the church of Rosnay, you will cross the countryside to reach the marshes before discovering the "Crazy Stones" (Pierres Folles), 2 menhirs dating from 3000 BC.
You will then reach the Yon valley and then the Chaussée de Chavagne. This river ends its journey to Rosnay, forming a valley very deep at the foot of the hills, before rushing into the Lay."

Points of interest
These two menhirs dating from 3000 BC and weighing 11 and 15 tons, came from the Yon, located more than 2km away. Legend has it that Gargantua loved to come to Bas Poitou to play pucks. During his games he crushed houses and herds and became the terror of the region. One day, he crushed a dozen sheep while playing Rosnay. The sheep dogs bit him on his heel. Having failed to catch them, he threw two pucks at them, which froze on the ground, forming the Crazy Stones (Pierres Folle) of Follet.
