The Northern Rhône Wine Trail

As it carved out the Rhône Corridor, the river created the rugged features and steep hills which now are home to vineyards. The vines, planted on sheer slopes, provide a striking spectacle and from the hill tops great panorama views.

The ruggedness of the terrain causing back breaking vineyard work makes you value the great wines even more.

While the South Rhone accounts for most of the region’s volume. the northern Rhône is the source of most of it's prestige wines. Hermitageand Côte Rotie produced less than less than half of one per cent of the region’s total production, yet the best of these wines are quality leaders of Rhone wine on a par with the great wines of Burgundyor Bordeaux. For whites, Condrieuand the small appellation of Château Grillet (whose area is just one vineyard property) produce some of France’s most sought-after whites.

A few well chosen stops inthe North can provided you with the introduction, education and background for all of Rhone wines so youmake great value purchases during all your vineyard visits.The reason for this is that two of the biggest and best merchants of Rhone wine are located in the North and each feature a full program of Rhone wines at various quality and price points.Plus the English speaking staff will be helpful in answering your questions.We suggest first a visit to one or both of the below companies and then being well prepared you can make the most of Domain visits.

The Triscastine  Rhone wine Route

The production area of Coteaux du Tricastin is situated South of Montelimar on the Eastern bank of the Rhône, running from Montélimar to Saint Paul Trois Châteaux. This magnificent region is the first to offer the Mediterranean light, smells, sounds and infinite colours. There is great diversity of the wines from this appellation  due to the many and mixed soil types and varied climates.  According to archaeological finds, particularly the remains of the largest Roman wine villa in Donzère wine has been produced in the region since the 1st century BC .

The area Appellation “ Coteaux du Tricastin” Red wines which comprise 95% of the this appellation's total production, are made from the principal varieties of Grenache Noir and Syrah (10% minimum), with secondary varieties of Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Carignan. No single variety may be present at more than 80%. A non defined quantity of secondary varieties cannot exceed 30%, or if declared separately, not more than 15% each.  Rosé: The same varieties in the same permitted proportions are used as for the red. White wines are produced from Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier. No variety may be present in excess of 60%. All the wines must contain at minimum 11% alcohol.  Although there are many excellent wines in all ranges there is no exceptional international demain so there are excellent values to be had at cooperatives and domains, and this applies to  the broader appellations of "Cote du Rhone" and "Cote du Rhone Village" and  "Vin de Pays".

 Rhone Vin Routes of Dentelles de Montmirail

This route goes through the beautiful Dentelles de Montmirail hills at the centre of a triangle made up of Mont Ventoux in the East, Vaison-la-Romaine to the North and Avignon to the South-West. Thus it is at the heart of some of the region's best vine growing country and the center of the Vaucluse region - Provence at its most historic and picturesque.

The medieval village of Séguret - classified amongst France's most beautiful villages, is perched on a limestone rock, just to the north of Gigondas. From here you get spectacular views over the entire Rhône valley, illuminated by the famed provencal light featured by the Impressionists and countless artists since. This is great touring country, with mountain-biking and hiking in hills, or easier walking and cycling along the valleys. There are weekly markets in Nyons, Vaison-la-Romaine and Carpentras, Roman remains at Vaison and Orange and the 14th century papal palace in Avignon, all are nearby. The villages are pretty, crowned with belltowers (of openwork forged iron, to let the Mistral blow through!). Be sure to stop in Gigondas, dominated by its relics, Séguret, or Beaumes de Venise and its splendid chapelle de Notre-Dame d’Aubune.

 The vignerons on this Côtes du Rhône route produce some it best wine and classic southern Rhone blends. They are especially welcoming in their tastng rooms offering outstanding values.- especially the prices for quality wines of 18 to 40 Euros, as these wines sell in USA and UK for £100 - $160. and over.

 In the villages, the narrow streets, shaded squares, outdoor restaurants, old fountains and the slow pace leave no doubt you are in the authentic Provence.

Autour d’Avignon - Rhone Vin Routes and Trails

Avignon is close to many of the wine routes and a great tourist centre. Staying in the city centre or at a hotel near the motorway exits makes a lot of wine touring convenient along with the excitement of city night life in town.  On this route going just north east of the city, without much driving you can visit the great wine villages of Chateauneuf du Pape, Courthezon and Sorgues. Each has some great domains and cooperatives for visiting and making good value wine purchases, plus along the way are plenty of other worthwhile Domain to catch your eye.
In the 14th century, Avignon became the centre of Christianity. On this trail you will come across a host of edifices that reflect the endeavour of the papal courtera. The imposing Palais des Papes, the famous Pont du Saint Bénézet, the conserved city remparts, and the great many churches and chapels, are tarchitectural gems. Avignon is now the capital of the Côtes du Rhône region, and comes alive each summer for a theatre festival. Your expedition will continue to Châteauneuf du Pape, where the supreme pontiffs built their summer residence, or to Châteauneuf de Gadagne

Under John XXII, the wines of this area came to be known as "Vin du Pape"; this term later became Châteauneuf-du-Pape. John XXII is also responsible for erecting the famous castle that stands as a symbol for the appellation.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is an Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) in the southern Rhône wine region. Unlike its northern Rhône neighbors, Châteauneuf-du-Pape permits thirteen different varieties of grape; the blend is usually predominantly Grenache. Other red grapes include Cinsault, Counoise, Mourvèdre, Muscardin, Syrah, Terret Noir, and Vaccarèse. White grapes include Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picardan, Roussanne, and Picpoul. With international markets in mind the trend has been to include fewer of the allowed white varieties and rely heavily upon the Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah.
