Wine from the Rhone Valley benefits from the Mediterranean climate in the region. It is in the south-east of France and follows the course of the river for nearly 150 miles, travelling from Lyon to the Bouches-du-Rhone at the Mediterranean Coast. The length of the valley means vines produced are widely varied in flavour and style.
The north and south sections of the valley produce hugely different types of wine. The northern sections of the valley focus closely on Syrah for red wine and Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne for whites and are known for working in smaller, quality driven processes. The south of the Rhone is much more prolific in its production and has a much longer list of varietals at its disposal with Grenache and Mourvedre amongst the most popular. When combined with Syrah these two varietals are blended to create the GSM blend which the southern Rhone region is known for.
