Images of Saint-Joseph

The pin shows the centre of the appellation, which stretches from the south of Condrieu to beyond Saint-Péray


Looking north from lieu-dit Le Paradis in the south of the appellation… The pyramid-shaped hillside to the left is lieu-dit Saint Joseph (which gives its name to the appellation). In the foreground, pruned canes are burnt in lieu-dit Les Oliviers. In the background is the hill of Hermitage rising up beyond the town of Tain L’Hermitage; you can just make out the white rectangular sign at the top.
