About the Region

From north to south, the Rhône Valley encompasses a wide range of appellations beyond such famous ones as Côte Rôtie, Hermitage, Condrieu, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. These include Château Grillet (a very small appellation with a single producer, also called Château Grillet, making viognier-based wines in an enclave enclosed by Condrieu), St. Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage (producing good-quality reds and whites), Lirac (known for rosé but also making good, low-key reds and whites), St. Péray (which yields white and sparkling wines), and Beaumes-de-Venise (famous for its muscat-based dessert wine).
