FR Chateauneuf-du-Pape Wine Tours

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, one of the world’s greatest wines.

Great wines are produced in the southern Rhône valley particularly in the sun-drenched Provence appelation called Châteauneuf-du-Pape. From the opinion of many wine expert, Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the world’s greatest wines. One of the oldest wine-growing areas in France, Châteauneuf-du-pape endured a century or more being ignored, misunderstood, under-valued. The 1980s and 1990s brought renewed interest, respect and recognition to these wonderful wines until 2007 when The famous American magazine specialized « The Wine Spectator » proclaimed that the best red wine in the world is French and it’s a Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The best grenaches of the world are on the terroirs of Châteauneuf du Pape: We do not find elsewhere the vinosity, the creamy side, the velvety that make this balance. Moreover, who knows that the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the summer residence of the Popes when they left Rome to settle in provence in the 14th century? Who knows that this village was part of an independent state since 1348 and did not become French until 1791 after the French Revolution? Who knows that the man who overcame Phylloxera disease  that decimated 95% of the vineyard in Europe at the end of the 19th century was a wine-grower of Châteauneuf du Pape? With a native like me, the terroir will have no more secrets for you. Enjoy my privileged relationship with the winemakers who trust me and give me the keys to their wineries so that I can open doors which are usually closed.
