Much like the Bordeaux growing regions, Rhone produces different profiles based on where along the river the grapes are grown. The northern end of the river and valley make up a miniscule portion of the wine coming out of Rhone due to its harsher continental climate. Its notoriety stems from it being the birthplace of Syrah. The southern end has a more Mediterranean climate, producing a wide variety of full-bodied reds and rich whites.

There are three levels of distinction for Rhone wines. AOC is the entry-level classification that makes up half of the region's production. Villages AOC is a bit more complex, and Villages AOC is allowed to a limited number of regions with the name of the village to distinguish itself further.
