THE FIRST WINE AOC IN FRANCE
The AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape is one of the 16 Crus of the Rhône Valley but perhaps the most emblematic. It was the first wine AOC in France recognized in 1936.
The terroir of the AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape extends over the municipalities of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Bédarrides, Courthézon, Orange and Sorgues. Made up mainly of rolled pebbles, stamps of the terroir of the appellation, the vineyard benefits from a restitution of the heat stored during the day which favors the ripening of the bunches of grapes.
