Southern France

The south of France, from the bottom of the Rhone Valley, towards the Spanish border and working its way west to the southern outskirts of Bordeaux encompasses a number of wine regions - Languedoc (which itself includes sub-regions such as Corbieres, Limoux, Minervois and Rivesaltes), Roussillon, Provence and Bandol - is home to a hugely diverse range of wine styles and grape varieties, and generally offers terrific value.sthn-france.jpg

Notwithstanding this diversity, the vast majority of the wines tend to be red wines, often rich and full-bodied, produced from varieties such as Mourvedre, Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault.   A number of exceptional rose styles are also produced in these regions, most notably in Provence and Bandol.  Some delicious sweet wines are also made (particularly Rivesaltes).
