La viticulture antique en Aquitaine

Abstract : The present work is the result of a team effort conducted from 1997 to 1999 in a multidisciplinary program of research dealing with vine growing in Aquitaine. From the outset, this research was focused on known or presumed wine-making facilities in several departments located north and south of the Garonne (Charente-Maritime, Charente, Dordogne, Gironde, Lot-et-Garonne, Lot, Gers, Tarn and Haute-Garonne). The article is divided into two complementary parts. The first treats of the chief sources of information about vine growing in Aquitaine: literary accounts and especially archaeological documentation gained from research on wine amphorae, which has been richly supplemented by recent excavations of wine-making establishments (Bapteste, Belmont, Les Chapelles, Lestagnac...). In addition, interpretative essays discuss assorted aspects of wine production, including varieties of wine and tools, as well as techniques for cultivating and processing wine. A chronological study completes the work.
