History

  • Wines have been produced in the region since pre-Roman times. In the mid 17th century the right-bank district of Côte du Rhône had issued regulations to govern the quality of its wine and in 1737 the king ordered that casks of wine shipped from the nearby river port of Roquemaure should be branded with the letters CDR to introduce a system of protecting its origin. The name was changed to Côtes du Rhône when the left-bank wines were included in the appellation some hundred years later.
