Wine and Gastronomy

truffe

Drôme offers a cornucopia of fine produce – visit its mouth-watering markets for gorgeous fruit, veg and cheeses, or exceptional herbs, olives and truffles.

Further culinary specialities include delicious Royans ravioli, Montélimar nougat and Valrhôna chocolate.
Drôme wines are of a high quality, going from the exclusive appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) territories of Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage in the north to the excellent Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône-Villages and Grignan-les-Adhémar (formerly Coteaux du Tricastin) AOCs in the south.

 

 
 

balade-dromeAnd let’s not forget the sparkling delights of Die up the Drôme. Savour the county’s best produce in its stellar restaurants, such as Pic in Valence, run by Anne-Sophie Pic, the only woman in France to have won three Michelin stars in recent times, or in the simpler but enchanting Bistrots de Pays, country inns offering hearty, well-priced fare. Some restaurateurs offer inspiring cookery courses.
