Cornas

Cornas is among the smallest of all the appellations in the Rhône valley and produces red wine from the Syrah grape. The addition of white grapes for blending is not permitted, and no whites are produced at all.

Along with the rest of the northern Rhône, Cornas experiences a continental climate as opposed to the Mediterranean climate further to the south. Unlike some other aspects of the northern Rhone, Cornas is, for the most part, shielded from the cold 'le mistral' winds and as a result is most often the first appellation in the north to begin harvest.

Only 270 acres of vines, planted anywhere from 100 meters and 400 meters above sea level, comprise the output of Cornas, so nowhere near the amount of wine is produced compared to nearby Saint-Joseph appellation, which is almost 20 times the size!
