The northern Rhône is home to the likes of Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie, Cornas and Condrieu.

Hermitage famously allows producers to blend up to 20% Viognier with Syrah, producing some of the world’s most sought-after wines.

Condrieu is a temple to Viognier grown on steep hillsides, where the warmth of the summer is countered by the cooling mistral winds to produce rich, ripe white wines.
