  • Costières De Nîmes is now part of the Rhône wine area, although wines have been made here for 2000+ years. The soil is characterized by small pebbles, or galets. Nearby the city of Nîmes has a rich history going back to the Roman empire. Popes of that era tapped this area for their wine supplies. Denim, the fabric of jeans, derives its name from this city (Serge de Nîmes).
