There are over 200,000 planted acres of vineyard in the Côtes du Rhône, reaching from Vienne to Avignon. Many of these vineyards can be found on the banks of the Rhône River, providing spectacular scenery for those enjoying river cruises in Europe. A great way to explore the region, river cruise guests will have plenty of opportunity to try some of the region's famous reds that come highly recommended by Richard Jennings, wine writer for The Huffington Post.
