Table Wines of the Ardèche
 
The Ardèche is often overlooked as a wine region. Though it may not have the elite crus of the Côtes du Rhône, many well-priced table wines come from this region. A good place to start exploring the region’s wines is at a wine festival: the 2-day Festivin in Bourg Saint Andéol during first week of December showcases over 30 producers with conferences and wine auctions, while wine estates open their doors for wine tastings and vineyard tours in April during the region-wide From Farm to Farm (www.defermeenferme.com) festival. Meanwhile, wine beginners and families can learn about wine at Néovinum, bd. de L’Europe Unie, Ruoms (www.neovinum.fr; tel. 04-75-39-98-08), a wine museum with interactive exhibits and easy-to-understand explanations.
