Ardeche

France - Ardeche

The Ardeche is situated in the South East of France where the famous ‘Mistral’ wind starts and has a long history of wine production, vines having been introduced there by the Romans.

The Ardèche lies to the side of the Rhône between the north and the south: St Joseph and Cornas at one end, and then after a gap Côtes de Rhône and Côtes du Rhône-Villages at the other. Vines are grown msinly on rolled-pebble vineyards on ancient terraces of the Rhône.
After a period of uninvestment, in the 1960s substantial government grants encouraged the returning ‘pied noirs’ of Algeria to replant the vineyards. The harsh stony soils of the area are extremely fertile, allowing annual production to meet current demand without compromising quality.
