Great place with lots of history - you must be experienced this place. Visit the vineyard behind the castle - there are lots of information and about the 13 different grapes in Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine. Veryeasy to find in the small town.

In the sort of hurried trip we were involved, to learn about local wine productions and buy wines from a place like La Cave du Verger du Papes is a great advantage. Our French is so so, but the lady who took care of us...More
