The Costieres de Nîmes vineyards are the link between two regions that are the cradle of wine culture civilization: Provence and Languedoc. The region has a rich history of viticulture, as vines have been planted here since Roman times.
On this tour you will taste the wines from the most southern part of the Rhone Valley. Les Costieres de Nîmes may be geographically located in Languedoc but their vineyards and terroir are naturally linked to the Rhône.
Start the day with a visit to the famous Pont du Gard, a Roman aqueduct that has been classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take time to discover this site full of history and then enjoy a delicious lunch with Mediterranean flavours in the restaurant facing the bridge.
In the afternoon, continue the experience with a visit of a real working Gallo-Roman cellar reconstituted by painstaking archeological work. Taste the wines produced in the winery and flavoured according to the recipes of ancient Latin authors.
You will end the day by visiting a traditional wine estate located in the heart of the "garrigue" where you will enjoy their excellent range of wines. Return to Montpellier around 5.30pm.
