The wines routes (8h) _ nr.2

TASTE THE SOUTH
MEET AUTHENTIC COUNTRY PEOPLE
TOURING WINE ESTATES

The ancient Greeks were the first to grow wine in Provence, on the hills surrounding “Massalia” (Marseille). The lower Rhone valley was also planted with vineyards many years ago.
Viticulture expanded thanks to the hospitality tradition of monasteries and abbeys!
In the 16th century, cultivating vine had become more profitable in Languedoc than growing cereals, and there weren’t enough hillsides and terrace crops for it!
At the end of the 19th century, the railway came to Languedoc. The winegrowers could now export their production to other regions, specifically the northern and the eastern parts of France.
