The INAO (National Institute of Appellations of Origin) has recognized the Appellation "Côtes du Rhône Villages Suze-la-Rousse".
The Appellation CDRV Suze-la-Rousse benefits from the climate and charm of the Drôme Provençale, surrounded by lavender and truffle oaks.
The very diversified soils can be at the same time stony, with rolled pebbles or clay-limestones, where the main grape varieties Grenache (60%), Syrah (20%) and Carignan (12%) blossom.
The parcel area delimited in AOP Côtes du Rhône Villages in the territory of the geographical area Suze-la-Rousse represents 2,607 hectares and extends over 4 communes (Bollène in Vaucluse, Bouchet, Suze-la-Rousse and Tulette in The Drôme).
