The Northern Cotes du Rhone

Public Wine Tour


Come to explore the Northern Rhône valley vineyards and discover the homeland of the legendary Syrah & Viognier grapes. Enter a glorious past which goes back to Roman times and taste Cote Rotie & Condrieu wines, some of the most prestigious appellations in the world.


En route, stop in Vienne to enjoy a spectacular view on the 2000 year’s old roman theatre and the stunning panorama on the Rhone Valley.

Then, cross Ampuis, the world capital of Syrah and visit Cote Rotie vineyards literally "the roasted slope". Drive on the precipitous vertigo inducing terraced slopes of Cote Brune and Cote Blonde and appreciate the 30 to 60 degree angles hills bathed in sun.

Later Condrieu, the birthplace town of Viognier grape which produces the world famous white wine. The group will get to know its unique story, how this grape variety almost died a few years ago.

Then, push the door of a first family winery and enjoy a private winery tour: learn some secrets about the unique Rhone wine-making savoir faire and the art of barrel aging. Then, taste 5 different Cotes du Rhone wines among them, some Condrieu, St Joseph or/and Cote Rotie Appellations.

Finally, stop at a second winery to delight yourself with another 5 beautiful Rhone wines: take time to enjoy the intense aromatic Viognier and the quasi absolute perfection of Syrah of the Northern Cotes du Rhone in their original terroir.
