Abstract: Wine is much more than a simple agricultural product or a vague raw material that is traded on the markets of London or Chicago. Wine ac­companies, enhances, completes and sometimes sublimates our table. How­ever, it cannot be confined to the gastronomy sector alone because it is much more than that. Wine has a cultural, historical and heritage dimension, it also occupies a decisive place in the economic and social fields. France and wine… A long story that has caused a lot of “ink to flow”. It was the Greeks who, around 600 BC. AD, planted the first vines in southern Gaul. From the 2nd century BC. AD, the Romans and then the Gallo-Romans gradually de­veloped wine production throughout the territory of present-day France. Dur­ing the Middle Ages and the centuries that followed, the wines were perfected. This movement resulted in the emergence of very different beverages, which current producers continue to improve.
