Photographer's Note

Construite au XVème siècle cette chapelle dépendait des Bénédictins de Saint André le Bas.
Au XVIIème siècle un ermite y aurait planté les premières vignes. Aujourd'hui les vins de Tain l'Hermitage sont connus et estimés dans le monde entier.

"According to legend, the Knight Gaspard de Stérimberg returned home wounded in 1224 from the Albigensian Crusade and was given permission by the Queen of France to build a small refuge to recover in, where he remained living as a hermit (ermite in French). The chapel on top was built in honor of Saint Christopher and today is owned by the negociant Paul Jaboulet Âiné. Louis XIII made the wine a wine of the court after being offered a glass during a visit to the region in 1642. Louis XIV presented King Charles II of England with 200 casks of fine wine including examples from Hermitage, Champagne and Burgundy. The Romanovs also imported the wine. In the 19th century wines from Bordeaux were often blended with Hermitage wines or hermitagé, and could fetch higher prices as a result. The appellation was established in its modern form in 1937."
