Châteauneuf-du-Pape  -  教皇新堡产区




          In the 14th century, during their stays in Avignon, the popes – and especially Pope John XXII – built a papal castle in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Impressed by the area's exceptional soils, they decided to establish vineyards on the slopes surrounding the château. Results were outstanding thanks to the amazing terroir and micro-climate proposed by the area. Since then, wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape gained fame and recognition around the world.
