The Rhône wine region in the South of France is located in the Rhône river valley and produces several wines under diverse Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) designations. The appellation the most produced in this region is “Côtes du Rhône AOC”.
The region of Rhône is split into two sub-regions with two different vinicultural methods, the North of Rhône and the South of Rhône (respectively in French Rhône septentrional and Rhône méridional). The North of the region produces red wines using the Syrah grape, sometimes mixed with white wine grapes, and white wines from Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier grapes. The South of the region produces an array of red, white and rosé wines, often mixed with several grapes such as in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
