In all, 13 grape varieties are allowed to blend the wines of Chateauneuf du Pape.

The village of Chateauneuf du Pape was in 1314 the home of Pope Clement V during the summer season. His successor John XXII promoted this wine to the rank of “Vin du Pape”, which made his reputation very quickly, especially during demonstrations and meals abroad.

Its quality and prestige quickly conquered the whole world and it has been centuries since the Chateauneuf du Pape Wines is renowned and appreciated.
