Estézargues
A village perched on a hilltop, dominated by its fortress looking church 10km from the Rhône valley to the north-west of Aramon. Remains found here confirm that Estézargues has been inhabited since Prehistoric times. Its current name comes from a Roman villa belonging to Consul Statius. The land is mainly dedicated to vineyards across the Signagues plateau which is also shared with the communes of Domazan, Saze and Rochefort du Gard. Together the villages were awarded the wine appellation Côtes du Rhône Villages: Signargues. The commune is also part of the AOC appellation area for Nîmes Olive Oil.
