Wine of Lirac appellation
Renowned since ancient times, the wines from Lirac brought prosperity to the region. Over the centuries, the port of Roquemaure became powerful and prosperous, exporting "Côte du Rhône" wines to Paris, England and the Netherlands. The wines of Lirac were decreed an AOC in 1947. 

Set out in terraces and hills, the Lirac vineyards nestle on the right bank of the Rhône facing those of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Located south of the Rhône Valley, they form a ring of 1,200 hectares amid Gard scrubland and Roman remains. They cover a large area that spans four communes: Lirac, Roquemaure, Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres and Saint-Geniès-de-Comolas. The area planted with vines which qualify for the Lirac AOC wine currently covers 747 hectares and produces around 19,500 hectolitres per year. 

Lirac has the distinction of being the oldest Côtes du Rhône wine growing area producing all three wine colours: red, white and rosé. This unusual feature has resulted from the diversity of the appellation’s soils and grape varieties. Lirac reds and rosés are produced mainly from Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Clairette, and particularly Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanche go into the Lirac whites. Within this appellation, the experimental wine drinker will be well rewarded by the wines from Château Aquéria, Domaine Maby and Domaine de la Mordorée.
