At the birth of the AOC

The Rhone Valley saw arriving the first AOC in 1933 (legalized in 1947 after the 2nd world war) that are Châteauneuf du Pape (and maybe also Tavel who knows...). A step forward in the wine industry that enhanced the specificities of a wine area, its grapes, its techinques, traditions etc etc. The Rhône Valley is also one of the oldest vineyard which saw settling the Romans on this land and who built magnificient gallo-roman villas, some vestiges are still visible and accessible nowadays. Later on Popes, wine amateurs, will choose the region as their base and will contribute to the wine rising in France.

Briefly
Crossing the Wine Roads of the Rhône Valley is being surprised by its geography (its hills, its steep vineyards; its river always around the corner...), is to discover a region with many particularities sometimes in the city, in villages, sometimes with alpine spirit or provencal spirit, but it is also tasting all those delicious food and wine pleasures in little bistrots or bouchons as it is called here or of course directly at the wine estate where you are staying at! Fly out!  

Gastronomy fill a big part of life in Rhône Valley and before us Paul Bocuse understood that and made french gastronomy reknown all around the world. Come to follow the wine road and taste a sample of those flavours, smells, of life! Join the Wine&Spirit Lodging Newsletter to hear about some!
