Top-quality wines from the oldest producer in the northern Rhône Valley | Britt on Forbes

Share/like this post:

The Rhône Valley is one of France’s great wine regions. The red wines dominate, but the white ones should not be ignored. There are many small growers in the Rhone region. But the Rhône Valley also has some bigger producers who have been influential in bringing Rhône Valley wines out into the world.

We recently tasted a wide range of wines from one of them, Maison Vidal Fleury, the oldest house in the northern Rhône. We discussed the wines with Antoine Dupré, an oenologist and the general manager since January 2021.

Read about the house and about the wines.

Read more in Britt’s article on BKWine Magazine, originally published on Forbes: The oldest winery of the northern Rhône: Vidal Fleury, more than “just” Côte Rôtie | Britt on Forbes.
