This AOC vineyard lies to the south-east of Nîmes, close to the mythical monuments in the city centre. It stretches between the ponds of Camargue, the Mediterranean sea and the Rhône river. The twofold influence of the climate and soil in this winegrowing region are ideal for producing wines with a fruity aroma and a delicate freshness.
To help visitors understand the unique characteritics of Costières wines, a hundred or so estates, cellars and storehouses are happy to introduce you to the specific qualities of the terroir and the practices of the local winemakers, who are deeply committed to respecting the environment.
