Vineyard accommodation in the Rhône Valley

Rhone wines logo

The Rhone Valley is split into 2 distinct areas

  • the Northern Cotes du Rhone to the south of Lyon, reputed for its elegant Syrah in places such as St Joseph and Hermitage; aromatic whites from Condrieu
  • The Southern Cotes du Rhone north of Avignon – mainly rich powerful and complex reds from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas etc and the most commonly seen Cotes du Rhone wines, mainly reds

The Mistral wind is vital to winemaking in the South of France, bringing cooler temperatures and reducing the risk of fungal diseases. Bold, meaty Syrah from Hermitage in the North and distinguished, complex red blends from Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the South are two of the most iconic wines of the region – with high prices to match.

Wines labelled Côtes du Rhône make up roughly half of all wines produced, making easy-drinking, food-friendly and far more affordable choices. They’re either red blends mostly made with Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre or floral and full-bodied white blends made mostly with Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Clairette.
