Rhône Valley

Our vineyards in the Rhône Valley are Domaine des Grands Devers near Valréas, La Fagotière in Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Montirius in Sarrians.

Where to stay in the Rhône Valley.

It was the Romans who introduced the cultivation of the vine to Provence, and its vineyards were made famous when the Papal court settled in Avignon at the end of the 13th century. In viticultural terms this is the southern Côte du Rhône, and the river Rhône is second only in importance as a ‘wine river’ in France to the Loire.

The Rhône Valley also comes second in the amount of wine produced, this time after Bordeaux. However, it probably comes first in terms of the diversity of its wines, both in terms of quality at the top end and reliability and value for money at lower price points.
