varieties are permitted in the appellations, with Grenache appearing as the predominant red varietal, most famously celebrated in the wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The range of grapes grown also provides refreshing alternatives to Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot, Cabernet and Merlot.

When compared to the wines offered from France's other leading winemaking areas, the wines of the Rhone Valley are comparatively cheap. As well as offering plenty of diversity from North to South, the area therefore produces some of the best value wines in the world. This, coupled with an incredible run of excellent vintages over the past 10 years, makes the Rhone Valley one of the most exciting and attractive wine producing regions in the world.
