THE RHONE VALLEY

THE VINEYARDS OF THE RHONE VALLEY

In two parts, the first vineyard is between Vienne and Valence, the northern Côtes-du-Rhone, and another further south between Montélimar and Nîmes, the southern Rhone valley.

It is the second largest area of vines after Bordeaux. The vineyards of the Rhone valley represent a whole world to be explored, a changing universe that winds around a fluid axis: the Rhone river, the “King of Rivers”, carrying stones and history. The Rhone is the link, the unifying element in this land of contrasts
