The region Côtes du Rhône, which translates as the ‘Rhone Valley’, is located in southeast France. It is divided into two areas, in each of which the wine is produced differently.
In the vineyards located in the northern part of the Rhône, there are characteristically steep hills along the banks of the Rhône River. In this area, the wines are typically cuvée, with the highest portion of the grapes being Syrah variety.
In the southern part of the Rhône, the vineyards are mainly located on the left bank of the Rhône. The most common grape varieties here are Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Among the most famous wine districts in Côtes du Rhône are Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Hermitage, Gigondas and Vacqueyras.
