Already in Roman times, Languedoc was a great vineyard which exported its wines throughout the Roman Empire.
The Musée de la Romanité in Nîmes retraces the epic of wine-growing history from these origins to the ancient period. A wonderful opportunity to understand the rich wine-growing past of this region.
Visit the Musée de la Romanité in a different way. This visit will take you through the museum around the history of wine through the ages, from the origins of wine, through its consumption during antiquity and its secrets. You will discover the story of Bacchus, mythical god of the vine and wine (but also of drunkenness and excess).
The visit will continue with a tasting of Roman wines from the Mas des Tourelles de Beaucaire. This estate has done experimental archaeological work to recreate wines from Roman times according to ancient recipes. These are wines with a unique and sometimes destabilizing taste for our contemporary palates.
A unique experience that provides the opportunity to immerse ourselves in this rich regional past.

Montpellier has been renowned for its faculty of medicine since the 14th century. This tradition of science has continued until today. It is here that the most brilliant researchers invented viticulture and modern oenology. Around the School of Agriculture, Montpellier has built up over time the largest center of wine research in the world. The terroirs of Grès de Montpellier, Saint Georges d'Orques, Saint Drézéry and Méjanelle are among the oldest in Languedoc. Over the centuries, the rich aristocrats and doctors of Montpellier have built superb wine castles on these terroirs. They called them their folies (that meands in french crazy, you should understand why when you visit it).
