The Rhône Valley vineyards are located on both sides of the river between Vienne and Avignon, just south of Lyon. The Northern and Southern Rhône are quite unique, each with vastly different geography, climate, soils and grape varieties, but share one thing in common – the Rhône River.
In the Southern Rhône, reds are made predominantly from the fruity Grenache, supplemented by Syrah, Mourvèdre and, to a lesser extent, Cinsault. Vines are grown on rocky soils with low rainfall and exposure to the infamous cold Mistral wind that blows through the valley.
Wines are known for being generous, well-structured and aromatic with a high alcohol content of up to 14%. Another unique characteristic of these wines are the nuances of Garrigue – the wild resinous herbs that cover the landscape that forms the gateway into Provence...
