Donati cane comes from a family owned group of plantations along a strip of land running through the Var region of France. Comprising a total of over 75 acres, the plantations are divided between the Sauvebonne valley and an area called the plain of Hyères. These plantations, about 40 miles inland from the Mediterranean, are claimed to experience micro-climates and soils that are favorable to the cultivation of bassoon cane.
