Grignan is a commune in the Drôme department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in southeastern France.It has a magnificent Renaissance castle and is mentioned in the letters that Madame de Sévigné wrote to her daughter, Madame de Grignan, in the 17th century.GeographyGrignan is located in the south of the Drôme department, near the border of the neighbouring Vaucluse department, and close to Mont Ventoux, the highest mountain in Provence.To visit Grignan, take the A7 autoroute and use either exit #18, Montélimar Sud, or #19, Bollène.AgricultureThe main crops produced in the area are lavender, truffles, wheat, and sunflowers.
