Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Rue rompe cul or, as we say in English, pain in the arse alley!!

Our favourite domaine

Grenache grape, essential to Châteauneuf-du-Pape and grown in ‘gobelet’ style i.e. no trellis and wires

We arrived in Avignon and the first thing we did was to go off in search of wine!!  Rather special wine as it happens and a rather special day where we learnt even more about grape varieties, wine making processes and domaines.  Châteauneuf-du-Pape consists of the remains of a castle, dozens of little “caves” for wine tasting/buying; and the Musee du vin which was fascinating and where we were introduced to ‘Filoul’ Châteauneuf-du-Pape.  We returned to Avignon with several bottles and a lot less money
