AOC area for red, rosé and white wines in the southern section of the Rhône in the south of France. It is an ancient wine-growing region since more than 2,000 years. In the 16th century, remarkable wine was produced here and shipped from the port of Roquemaure to Paris, England and Holland. The origin was certified by the magistrate officials by order of Louis XIV by burning "C d R" on the barrels. The area was one of the first to be struck by phylloxera in 1863, when a château owner imported vines from North America. Famous wine lovers were the Popes John XXII (1244-1334), Clement V (1264-1314), as well as the French kings Henry IV (1553-1610) and Louis XIV (1638-1715).
