- La Tarasque
Côtes du Rhône wine
- This wine is named after La Tarasque, a dragon who terrorized the people of Provence in medieval times. The dragon was tamed by Saint Martha, and she led it back to the village of Nerluc to show people it had reformed, but the villagers killed it. After learning that the dragon was not so bad after all, the people felt sorry and renamed their village Tarascon. The wine comes from this area in France.
