It’s easy to forget sometimes as you turn on your faucet to cook or take a shower that water is a priceless resource that until recent history wasn’t readily available. When going back in time you can trace the history of agriculture, trade, and cities all to bodies of water, and this includes the epic Rhône River! The Rhône River begins at an alpine glacier in the Swiss Alps and then twists and turns its way through the cities of Geneva, Avignon, Lyon, and Arles. In Arles, the Rhône River is divided into two sections are nicknamed ‘The Grand Rhone’ and the ‘Petit Rhone,’ and flanking the river on both sides is the wine region of the Côtes du Rhône (or the Rhône Valley).
