What do we mean when we say we make only "Rhône style" wines?

The Rhône, a major river in France, rises in the Alps and flows south to the Mediterranean Sea.  This river lends its name to the southern French wine region on its banks, the Rhône Valley.  The indigenous grape varieties that grow in the region, like Syrah, Grenache & Viognier, are often referred to as Rhône grapes.  So, regardless of their place of origin, wines made from these grapes are said to be Rhône style wines the world over.
