Château Montfin, and the History of the Corbières Vineyards

Château Montfin is located in the limestone hills of the Corbières region, where the winemaking tradition dates back to the Roman period. Roman colonization linked the Narbonnese to Rome, which led to the decisive development of vine in the Mediterranean south. Over time, the region became famous as the wine cellar of Rome, Baterae, Beziers, provided amphorae. At the end of the first century of their era, Domitian uprooted half of the vineyard and gave rise to barbarian invasion. In the eighth century, the abbeys and monasteries looked after the vineyards of Château Montfin and started the renovation of thousands of hectares of vines.

The Modernization of the Corbières Appellation

The commercial network of vineyards increased due to the development that brought the wines of the south to Russia and Scotland. In 1729, the states of Languedoc submitted royal signature for the production and trade of wines in France. During the Industrial Revolution, they covered a 3000-sqm area with vines in the Corbières for the production of entrylevel wines. With the hard work on grapes varieties, the winemakers improved the quality of the wine in the 20th century.
