Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 26 November, 2021

Appellation for red, rosé and white wines in the east of the French wine-growing region Languedoc south of the city of Nimes. The area is geographically still in the Languedoc, but in terms of wine law it has belonged to the Rhône wine-growing region since 2004, as the wines are more in keeping with the typicity there (the enclave AOC Clairette de Bellegarde, however, belongs to the Languedoc). Formerly called "Costières du Gard", the area was renamed in 1989 to avoid confusion with the IGP Gard. The vineyards cover 4,600 hectares of vines on powerful gravel soils, spread over 24 communes in the...

The Rhône, over 800 kilometres long, is one of the most important wine rivers in the world. Like all bodies of water, it has a positive effect on viticulture or creates the conditions for it by forming valley slopes, some of which are very steep.

In the 6th century BC, the Greeks founded the Rhône. The Greeks founded the city of...

A lively trade developed and the Greeks covered the demand. When the Greeks migrated to the Po Valley in the 5th century, they got to know Italian wine and began to import it. The later...
