The Rhône Valley has been a hub of wine culture since ancient times and is just as popular today. Cotes du Rhone can be classed as one of the best wine regions in the world providing truly sublime character.
In the south, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Tavel, Lirac, and the Cotes du Rhone are the important regions in the Rhone Valley.
The Northern Rhone, only allows one red grape by law, Syrah but they are also allowed blend in up to 20% white wine grapes with their red wine. This is most often often done in Cote Roite.
