The Vignobles & Découvertes label aims to provide quality services and visits catering to wine tourism. The label appeals to a customer base that appreciates the world of wine without necessarily being connoisseurs, and offers a range of quality services: accommodation, cultural sites, leisure activities, cellar tours, restaurants, exploration of natural spaces, events and more.
Four destinations in Rhône Valley have been awarded the label: Autour des Dentelles de Montmirail, Condrieu, Côte Rôtie, D'Hermitage en Saint-Joseph and Rhône Crussol.

The Crussol - Côtes du Rhône region is where the Saint-Péray and Cornas AOCs are found and also includes parcels of land at Saint-Joseph.
