La viticulture antique dans le Tricastin (moyenne vallée du Rhône)

Abstract : In the central part of the Rhône valley, the Tricastin offers several occurrences of Roman viticulture. Several Roman villae had wine-presses and important wine-cellars. Among these the Molard villa, the largest one, had wine-presses and a cellar which contained 2500 hl of wine. In this area, excavations, surveys and rescue archaeology reveal other evidences such as planting holes. These occurrences allow us to discuss the question of the size of the estates and the commercial links. The Tricastin is known for its mass production of wine during the second half of the 1st century AD and the beginning of the 2nd century.
