IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
Gamay is still grown in the Northern Rhône, mostly on hills that are considered unsuitable for Syrah. This chauvinist attitude is quite fortunate for wine lovers, as it means that the grapes are undervalued by growers in this region who produce tiny bits of excellently enjoyable and affordable Gamay. We only wish there was more to enjoy!
