The area covered by this Cornas Appellation is limited to the commune of Cornas in the French Department Ardèche, on the right bank of the Rhône. The vines are planted on extremely steep granitic terraces supported by small retaining walls. The climate is very sunny with the slopes having South and South-east aspects.
Cornas was consecrated Local A.O.C. in 1938. The wine is made exclusively from Syrah.
