Vallée de Rhone

Between the towns of Avignon and Vienne stretches of the river Rhone valley, which is produced wine for over 2000 years. The foundation stone of this ancient wine region laid the Celts, Greeks and Romans. According to one legend, in 1956 swept through the valley this winter mistral speed of 100km/ha temperature thermometer dropped to -15 ° C. All olive groves were damaged and the local farmers decided to grow a vine that this climate is the only survivor. The area is divided into Northern and Southern Rhone. Both are quite different from each other by different types of soil, microclimate and especially varieties.

In the northern parts are used only for red wine Syrah and Roussanne, and Marssanne Viogner for white wines. In the southern part of the Rhone into the cuvée widely used blue varieties Syrah, Grenache, Mourvčdre, Cinsault, Carignan for the production of red wines.
