Located in the southeastern part of France. The Rhône Valley is divided into two main regions: the northern Rhône and the southern Rhône. Each region produces its own distinct style of wine and is known for producing some of France's most sought-after and prestigious wines.

The northern Rhône is known for its red wine made from the Syrah grape, which is used to produce some of the world's finest red wines such as Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie, and Cornas. These wines are full-bodied with rich black fruit flavors, earthy undertones, and a signature spice character. The whites from the northern Rhône, made from the Viognier grape, are also highly sought-after and are known for their aromatic, rich, and sometimes slightly sweet flavors.

The southern Rhône, on the other hand, is known for its rich, full-bodied red wines made from a blend of grape varieties, including Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault. These blends are known as Côtes-du-Rhône and are the most widely produced red wines in the region. They are typically medium to full-bodied with soft tannins, rich fruit flavors, and a hint of spice. The southern Rhône is also known for its rosé wines made from the same grape varieties and for its white wines made from a blend of grapes, including Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Viognier. Perhaps the most famous AOC in this area is Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
