About South of the Rhone Valley

The territory stretches from Bollène to Avignon. It is mostly made up of lowlands and hills, except some zones of low mountains such as the Cotes du Ventoux.

The hot climate, of Mediterranean type, differs from that of the North. The grape variety grenache dominates production, in red, although grape varieties are also used in red as in white.

Côtes du Rhône:
This vast zone of generic production is more qualitative, consisting of 90 villages which were differentiated from Côtes du Rhône-villages. More than 18 of them have the right to inscribe their name on their labels. Among them are Chusclan, Cairanne and Rasteau.

A recent AOC that produces in red, rosé and white. The reds are rather rich.

The vineyards of the Cotes du Ventoux, Luberon and Costières de Nîmes give less rich and ample wines that are fond of good food and easy to drink.

On the right bank of the Rhône, facing Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the rosé is the speciality of the Tavel and Lirac vineyards. The style of these rosés is perfectly suitable for the table because it is rather full-bodied and well-built.

Close to the peaks of the Dentelles de Montmiral, AOC Gigondas and Vacqueyras primarily produce reds with developed muscles among which the nicest vatfuls can mature for a long time with beneficial results.

AOC Beaumes-de-Venise produces, as AOC Rasteau, a wine which is fortified with spirit (vin doux naturel) and lightly sweetened that has a complex bouquet.

Almost exclusively red, this renowned vineyard gives birth to wines that are fabled in ageing.
