The town of Minerve is named after the Greek goddess Minerva, and the vine probably arrived with the Greeks in the 6th century BC. The area prospered under the Roman Empire and its thirst for all such local wines. Here, the two most important Rhone grapes, Syrah and Grenache, are given the stage along with the no less intense grape Cinsault, all are drawn from 50-year-old vines.
