Rhône Valley

France

Best known as the region that produces Châteauneuf-du-Pape of which we have a great range at House of Townend that includes wines from the prestigious Domaine de Vieux Télégraphe. Situated in the Rhône valley of Southern France, the Rhône wine region produces a variety of wines under various Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) designations including the region's major appellation in production volume, Côtes du Rhône AOC. The Rhône is generally divided into two sub-regions with distinct vinicultural traditions; the Northern sub-region produces red wines from the Syrah grape, and white wines from Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier grapes, and the Southern sub-region produces an array of red, white and rosé wines, as well as blends of several grapes such as in Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
