Photo tour of the Côtes du Rhone in winter

This is so restful and lovely. A photo tour of Côtes du Rhone in winter. I have a personal love for Vacqueyras, which is included here. Passing along the gorgeous love.

Talking Tannins

My brother and I recently had the pleasure of a free weekend around Orange, the center of the Côtes du Rhone wine region in and around Provence. This highly productive region is famous around the world and these wines land on almost every table in New York. From $10 (Domaine Jaume) to $120 (Château de Beaucastel), you can find an excellent selection on our shores. From fresh and fruity to dark and brooding, the “CDR” makes it all.

Rather than use words here, let’s let the photos speak for themselves. Just looking at the vines you can see the incredible diversity in the wines. For a handy map click here. The photos are my brother’s.
