If only lightly familiar with French wines, Champagne or Burgundy probably pop into your mind when conversation turns to bottles from France.

Reader, get ready to meet your new wine best friend: Wines of the Rhône Valley. Serve Rhône Valley wines to your pals and you will be so popular that they’ll let you sit in the front seat.
