Wine Tasting in Chateauneuf du Pape

Our first day was in Chateauneuf du Pape, where it’s all about Grenache! That’s the grape that is used the most in wines from Chateauneuf du Pape. (Though it’s possible to use up to 13 grapes in the wine.) We tried pure grenache as well as wines with various combinations….And tasted them  it in an ancient cave (with Roman ruins) and a beautiful chateau.

 

 


Photography was hard to resist!
Now for three days in the Luberon! It’s simply the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

A private “welcome” dinner prepared just for us. And off to bed for a restful night in a Medieval village.
