The Northern Rhône Valley wine locale embraces the Rhône River from Vienne in the north to Valence at its southern tip. The French call the area Côtes du Rhône Septentrionales, and it is separated into eight epithets. Alongside its neighbor toward the south, the Southern Rhone Valley, it is well known for its huge, tannic, strongly thought wines.

White wines are produced using Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne.

Parker, an extraordinary champion of Rhone wines, has composed that "the northern Rhône produces three of the best wines on the planet – the white wines of Condrieu and the red wines of Côte-Rôtie and Hermitage."
