For over forty centuries this immense growing region of southern France has offered up some of the most soul-quenching, generously-fruity and unmistakably sun-infused wines found anywhere!
From the rugged granite slopes of the north that plunge headlong toward the mighty Rhone river to the vast, gravelly-rocky plains of the south, wines of great dimension, structure and age-worthiness sit side by side with intensely-perfumed whites, hearty reds and deliciously-dry rosés crafted for more immediate pleasure.
Names like Cote-Rotie, Hermitage and Chateauneuf-du-pape invite passionate conversation and light up any finely-appointed table while the consistently rewarding and at times subtly-complex wines of the expansive Cotes-du-Rhone appellation never met a roast, pizza or grilled meat dish they could resist!
Here’s your chance to mine the jewels of this pivotal, southern-French treasure chest and hone in on some of the most exciting wines produced anywhere!
