Decanter’s Rhône correspondent Matt Wall’s Top Choices

‘In Avignon La Fourchette is comfortable but elegant, while Le 46 is more relaxed, with an extensive list of Rhône wines. Maison Ripert is a reliable brasserie in the pedestrianised quarter, and Avenio is a less traditional, more contemporary alternative.’  


These are just a few of the many great restaurants in southern Rhône.

Why not join Walls on a tour of the Rhône valley where he will show you some of the finest local cuisine at Michelin-starred establishments.
