Forming a corridor between the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, the Rhône Valley extends over six French departments. The region draws its strength from this rich and powerful river, which shapes its landscape and molds its character. The wines grown between Vienne and Avignon, between the Massif Central, the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea, draw their strength from the sun and caressing wind, and from the determination of the region’s many wine-growers to produce quality wines while respecting the environment. These wines, crafted and inspired by a great variety of grape varieties and terroirs, give pleasure to wine-lovers in all parts of the world.
