Rhone

960px-tain-rh-ne-et-vignobles.jpg

Inhabitants of the Rhone River Valley have been growing wine grapes since at least the 1st Century CE, and probably longer. Today, the wine growing areas of the Rhone Valley in France are divided into a northern  and a southern region. The northern Rhone is the home of the Syrah grape, where it produces some of the finest red wines in the world, as well as Viognier for whites. In the warmer south, Grenache dominates reds with support from Syrah and Mourvedre, while Marsanne, Roussanne and a plethora of others make up the whites. We here at Marquis love our Rhone wines, and our selection of exclusive Rhone producers is unparalleled in Canada.
