Listed as a national Heritage in 2013, curious can climb up at the bottom of the hill to admire a breathtaking panorama on the Rhône valley.
On foot, by bike or on board of the road train of the Hermitage vineyards, this place should not be missed.
Overlooking the town of Tain l’Hermitage, the slopes of Hermitage vineyards are emblematic of Rhône wine-growing landscapes and represent the showcase of the Hermitage appellation, one of the most prestigious of Côte du Rhône. Located at the confluence of the Rhône and river Doux, about 20 kilometres in the north of Valence, in a narrow meander of Rhône, this set of hills is a natural amphitheater that stands out quiet clearly in the great landscape. It is emphasized by a foreground densely built up by the town of Tain l’Hermitage which is established itself at its feet and is facing, on the other side of Rhône, the town of Tournon-sur-Rhône.
Whether wine enthusiast or expert, the northern Côte du Rhône can be discovered in the wine cellars, with tastings organized by the winemakers. There are also available in many restaurants.
