New village appellations in the southern Rhone Valley

Écrit par 
For most wine producers in France, it is important to be able to sell their wines with a so well defined geographical origin as possible. Some districts struggle for many years to be promoted in the appellation hierarchy. On November 16, three villages in the southern Rhone Valley succeeded. Sainte-Cécile, Vaison-la-Romaine and Suze-la-Rousse …were all upgraded from regular Côtes-du-Rhone Villages to Côtes-du-Rhone Villages with their village name specified.

They join 18 other Côtes-du-Rhône Villages with the right to put the village name on the label.

The three villages are all located in the northern part of the southern Rhone Valley. The landscape is typical Provencal, very charming, with not only vineyards but also olive groves and lavender fields.

Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Sainte-Cécile has three cooperatives and around 15 independent producers. Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Vaison-la-Romaine has a total of 766 hectares of vineyards. Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Suze-la-Rousse is the largest of the three, with more than 2600 hectares. The town is known for its wine university.
