Castles, popes, fierce restrictions and bizarre legends give these wines more personality than mere 'tasting notes'. Chateauneuf-du-Pape translates to, "new castle of the pope". After a dispute amongst themselves, the cardinals of Rome moved the papacy to Avignon, France. And where there is a pope, there is wine. Very good wine.

A new wine-making tradition was born using the legally permitted 13 grape varieties in 1308. This heavily restricted territory limits its yields to roughly half of what may be produced in Bordeaux and permits nearly no outside interference in the natural process of wine-making. These wines are so unique that citrus characteristics have been noted after 8-10 years of aging in their red production.

Learn why 'flying saucers' are not permitted to fly over Chateauneuf-du-Pape and so very much more!

This in-depth exploration will be presented by a Certified Wine Educator.
