Description

The Côtes du Rhône vineyard is one of the oldest in France.  More than two thousand years ago, Vienna was a prestigeous metropolis and first planted vineyards there.  The idea which differentiates Nothern from Southern Vineyards dates back to the XII th century.  The reputation of wines largely overstepping regional limits, a royal edict in 1729 respecified the demarcation and instituted marking of casks with the letters ” C.D.R. “. The Côtes du Rhône wines finally attained official recognition from the INAO in 1937 thanks to Baron Le Roy de Boiseaumarié.
