French wine originated in the south of France in the 6th century BC during the Roman occupation. Viticulture began to develop in the city of Marseille – a Roman colony. The Roman Empire allowed regions in the south of France to produce wine. Saint Martin de Tours (316 – 397) was actively involved in the spread of Christianity and viticulture. During the chaotic Middle Ages, monks were instrumental in preserving the vineyards and winemaking techniques. The monasteries had high protection, abundant labor resources to produce wine for the holidays and thanks to it increased income significantly. During that period, large vineyards often belonged to Christian churches and their wines were always considered premium wines. Later, the nobility expanded the area for growing grapes. However, the French Revolution led the movement to confiscate church lands, the aristocracy divided among the people. It is for this reason that grape production also increases.
