Hermitage AOC

Definition

Wine

  • an appellation in the northern part of the Rhône region of southern France that produces some of the best red and white wines in France. The wines are capable of many years of ageing before being at their best, and are grown in vineyards perched dramatically on the steep hillside above the town of Tain-l’Hermitage. The red wines are made from Syrah grapes and the white wines from Marsanne and Rousanne.
