Saint-Joseph is a wine appellation in the Cotes du Rhone region of France where some elegant red wines are produced based on the Syrah grape. The appellation extends from Valence in the south following the left bank of the Rhone to the commune of Chavanay at the northern end.
The extent of the appellation runs to a little over 1000 hectares and red wines made from Syrah and white wines made from Roussanne and Marsanne are permitted. It is also permitted to use up to 10% of white wine grapes when making a red wine here.
