Die (French pronunciation: ​[di]; Occitan: Diá [ˈdjɔ]) is a commune, former episcopal see, and subprefecture of the Drôme department in southeastern France. The region around Die is known as the Diois.

Die is best known for the Clairette de Die, a sparkling wine. It was a county in the High Middle Ages. It was once the site of a Roman Catholic diocese and its cathedral remains.
