AOP CÔTES DU RHÔNE VILLAGES

Cotes du Rhone Villages introduction

While Côtes du Rhône can come from a vast area of around 56,000 ha (140,000 acres) around the southern end of the French Rhône Valley, Côtes du Rhône-Villages comes from a tightly defined area an eighth as big on particularly suitable land north and west of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Since the appellation was formed in 1966, five of the nearly 20 villages have been granted their own appellations – Beaumes-de-Venise, Gigondas, Rasteau, Vacqueyras and Vinsobres – so these Cotes du Rhone could be the future of the region.
