The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Description: After leaving Geneva to enter France, the Rhône runs practically due south from Lyon to the Bouches-du-Rhône on the coast. It runs through Isère, Drôme, Provence-Alpes-Côte-d’Azur and Bouches-du-Rhône. Côtes-du-Rhône is the region between Vienne, just south of Lyon, and Avignon. It produces AOC red, white and rosé wines but mainly red. Red and rosé wines may be made with Grenache Noir, which predominates, Syrah, Cinsaut, Carignan, Counoise and Mourvèdre grapes, producing pleasant, mainly lightish, spicy, red wines. White wines are made from Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier and Bourboulenc grapes.

In the north of Côtes du Rhône are found Côte Rôtie with Condrieu, Château Grillet, Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage. In the south are Gigondas, Châteauneuf du Pape and Côtes du Ventoux.
