Ardèche Wine

Some self-proclaimed wine buffs can get very sniffy about wines from the Ardèche as they lack the cachet of a rarefied appellation and tend to focus on good value, single-varietal bottlings, rather than arcane blends. More fool them. This extensive vine area in the hills to the east of the Rhône represents a happy hunting ground for those looking for characterful, well-made and keenly-priced wines. The pioneering ‘Vignerons Ardéchois’ cave co-opérative, based in Ruoms, 20 kilometres due south of Aubenas, produce an excellent range of well-crafted, accessible Ardèche wines for immediate drinking.
