The story :
Such as many villages in the region, Beaumes de Venise produces wines since Roman times, but its particularity comes from the development of a natural sweet wine. Pline l’Ancien wrote : "Muscat is long cultivated at Beaumes and gives a remarkable wine. Since then, the history of Muscat de Beaumes never stopped: the muscat provided Pope Clement V in Avignon and the nobles of the kingdom, as Henri IV, enjoyed the Muscat.
A terroir is a geographically delimited area (such as Beaumes de Venise vineyards and the Montmirail Dentelles) defined from a human community that builds during its history a set of distinctive cultural traits, knowledge and practices based on a system of interaction between the natural environment and human factors. The skills involved reveal an originality, confer typicity and allow recognition for products or services originating from this space and therefore for the people who live there. These areas are living and innovative spaces which cannot be assimilated to the only tradition. (Proposed definition from a working group INRA / INAO).
