Chateauneuf-du-Pape, located in the Southern Rhone Valley in France, is one of the world's most prestigious and well-known wine regions. The name roughly translates to "The Pope's new castle" and the history of this appellation is firmly entwined with papal history. The region covers 3231 hectares (7983 acres) of vineyards with variable types of soil or more or less covered by the famous galets roules, large rounded pebbles. While the young and passionate generation of winegrowers is gradually taking over from their parents, contemporary winemaking basically remains traditional. Chateauneuf-du-Pape produces red and white wines in many different styles and are among the most hedonistic and generous wines in the world. This book will introduce you to Chateauneuf's history, geography, climate, winemaking aspects, and more.
