Discover in video the vineyards of the Rhône Valley in the Hermitage, Crozes Hermitage and St Joseph appellations.

In the region, the Rhone holds a central place. To begin with, it is he who carved these steep slopes and steep hillsides. He did it right, since the Hermitage hill has been classified as a National Heritage Site since 2013!

A tumultuous and dangerous river to navigate, the Rhone is nevertheless a historic transport route by which the Romans arrived. They established the cultivation of vines here and shaped these landscapes into narrow terraces.Moreover, between the vineyards of the Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph appellations, the vine seems to assiduously follow the course of the river as if to give reason to the local saying: "for the wine to be good, the vine must see the river".

Today, the current of the Rhône also serves as a guide for our walks. You can follow it by road, via the mythical National 7 or from the Viarhôna, which allows you to pedal in complete safety over the thirty kilometres or so of the area. And of course, the cruise boats naturally offer a privileged view of these breathtaking landscapes.
