Independent community area in the department Drôme in the southern French appellation Cotes du Rhone-Villages (see the AOC regulations there). The municipality has been allowed to use the name on the label lead. Already in a decree by the Roman emperor Domitian (51-96) viticulture is mentioned here. The later US President Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), who worked as an ambassador to France, sent the ruling US President George Washington (1732-1799) wine from here to try, among other things. The vineyards cover 180 hectares of vineyards on red clay soils with zones rich in silicate. Red, rose and white wines are produced. The largest producer is Cave Cooperative Vinicole de Rochegude.
