The Rhône Valley


Since approximately 600 B.C., cultivated vines were planted and grown in the Rhône Valley region.  Where and how the region’s signature grape varietals – Syrah and Viognier – found their way there remains a mystery: some experts claim that Greek aficionados brought the Syrah grape from the Persian city of Shiraz.  Other historians believe that the grapes came 50 years later, when Greek populations fled from the rule of Cyrus I, the Persian king. Still others claim that they came from Sicily’s city of Syracuse, introduced by Romans who brought both the Syrah and the Viognier.  Finally, there is a section of fans who maintain that the Syrah grape is native to the Rhône region.

These questions may never be resolved; however, what is certain is that during the 13th century, corresponding with the move of the Pope to Avignon, production and trade of Rhône wine picked up tremendously.  In fact, it grew to the extent that the Duke of Burgundy banned the import and export of non-Burgundian wines. In 1446, the city of Dijon forbade all wines from Lyon, Tournon and Vienne, arguing that they were "très petit et pauvres vins" - very small and miserable wines. In 1650, in an attempt to defend against forgeries, a set of rules was passed to guarantee the origin of the wine. In 1737, the King decreed that all casks destined for resale should be branded C.D.R., for Côtes du Rhône.
