Of Roman origin, the village of Sablet has always been a wine-growing area that produces remarkable wines, particularly thanks to its sandy soil. The name Sablet refers directly to the composition of its friable soils.
At the end of the 19th century, the village’s vineyard was restructured following the phylloxera crisis which nearly destroyed the French vineyard. It is moreover a Sablétain who, by inventing the machine for grafting vine stocks, allowed to reconstitute it and to eradicate this disease.
It wasn’t until 1974 that the Sablet appellation became a Côtes du Rhône Villages for its three colors.
