In the Middle Ages, monasteries such as those found in Burgundy began to take over the management of vineyards. This is how Châteauneuf was renamed Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the moment the Popes chose the area as a holiday destination.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the wine of all important occasions. The hillsides lie between Orange and Avignon gracing the finest landscapes of Provence. The soils are particularly photogenic, a sea of pebbles from which emerge gnarled vine stock. There are three types of terroir: rolled pebbles, gravely soils and sandy soils. The appellation's different terroirs are called "quarters" by local wine-growers, and very often vine from all three are used to shape this wine. The appellation enjoys a unique micro-climate, as the sun's heat is stored during the day by pebbles which then returns this warmth at night. This day-night process helps to ensure excellent maturity of grapes.
