The Rhone Wineries

The Rhne
Rhne Producers

When considering the Ctes-du-Rhne it is best to look at the
North & South separately. The Northern Rhne has a continental climate,
and the Southern area is mainly Mediterranean.
The Wines of the North are firm and tannic, while the warmer climate of the
South yields wines that are higher in alcohol & with a riper & softer edge.

Grape varieties of the region:
Red:  Syrah, Grenache, Mourvdre, Cinsault
White:  Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Clairette
