Anyone who’s had even a little to do with wine has heard the name before – Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is isn’t one of the most famous wine regions in the world for no reason!! You’ll see and walk through some of the famous vineyards and will then get to enjoy a taste, in vegan organic quality, of course. All this while learning about the region, its history and its wines.
The secret of the excellent Chateauneuf du Pape wine comes from the red clay soil combining a mixture of limestone, deposits of sediments from the Rhône river and pebbles from the Alps which all allow the grapes to mature for many years. Chateauneuf enjoys a favourable Mediterranean climate, although climate change over the years has seen temperatures rise significantly. So much so in fact that the grape picking season has come forward by one whole month over the last 50 years.
Included in this excursion: A very fine bottle of wine for you take home. Enjoy!
