Wine Maps: France – Chateauneuf-du-pape

This map depicts wineries and tasting rooms within the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region of France. It is one of many maps generated to support the “Wine Regions of the World” series. Châteauneuf-du-Pape roughly translates to “The Pope’s new castle” and is located in southeastern France. Vineyards are located around Châteauneuf-du-Pape and in the neighboring villages Bédarrides, Courthézon and Sorgues between Avignon and Orange.

The soil is vast and varied with a layer of stones known as galets (“pebbles”). The rocks are typically quartzite and remnants of Alpine glaciers that have been smoothed over by the Rhône River. The region makes both reds and whites with reds producing the majority, which are packaged in heavy dark bottles embossed with papal regalia and insignia.
