Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley, located directly below Burgundy's most southerly point, is sliced across the middle to form two major wine producing areas- northern Rhone and southern Rhone. The Northern Rhone rock star red variety is Syrah. It produces the flagship wines of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, and the much famed Cote-Rotie, and grows the native white grape Viognier.

With around thirteen red varieties planted alongside two native whites, Marsanne and Rousanne, understanding the wines of the southern Rhone is somewhat less simple. The three most important varieals are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, and the most important sub-regions are St. Joseph, Cotes du Rhone, and the much-famed Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
