Will Ventoux Wines Become Côtes du Rhône?

Contributor blog post by Cheryl Shfflebotham:

The smooth, bold red wines that fall under the Ventoux AOC, formerly known as Côtes du Ventoux, are distinct from the neighboring Côtes du Rhône wines. I actually prefer them, but again I am no expert on wine or anything for that matter.All I know is that I like the wines of Provence, especially those known as Ventoux.

…Continue reading here for details on the Appellation Côtes de Ventoux wines and the possibility of a transition to the umbrella of Côtes du Rhône AOC classification. Time will tell, but for now discover Cheryl’s “wine of the trip.”

Although, Cheryl and her husband live in upstate New York, she tells us that she is always yearning, planning, maneuvering to make her way back to France.

Cheryl's love for France started almost eleven years ago with "a once in a lifetime" ten-year anniversary trip. These wannabe expats have been back every year since that trip!

Cheryl's first French love is the region of Burgundy, but then a few years ago, she discovered Provence. Now she admits that she is torn between Burgundy and Provence. It sounds like Provence has her spellbound, "I can’t quite put a finger on what it is about Provence, but its intoxication keeps luring me back for more."

Cheryl started her blog Cobblestone and Vineyards to explore the simple charms of France, those small details that capture the heart.
