(or Serine) is supposed to have been brought in the south of France from the region of Syracuse by the Roman.

The vine-variety is the principal grape in the north of the Rhône Valley. Syrah appreciates poor soil and hot climate.

The Syrah wine is strong, rich and colored with aromas of pepper, violet or raspberry, depending up on the soil.

We owe to Syrah the big Côtes du Rhône such as Côte Rotie or Hermitage and also Languedoc-Roussillon wines.

Syrah perfectly acclimated itself in California, Australia and South Africa.


Aromas : raspberry, black pepper, licorice, violet

French wines : Chateauneuf du Pape, Cote Rotie, Hermitage, Coteaux du Languedoc, Cotes de Provence, etc  

Other Red grapes : Cabernet Franc - Cabernet Sauvignon - Carignan - Cinsault - Gamay - Grenache - Merlot - Mourvedre - Pinot Noir - White Grapes
