Welcome to Châteauneuf-du-Pape

As its name hints, the hilltop château after which the wine is named was originally built as a summer residence for Avignon's popes, but it's little more than a ruin now – plundered for stone after the Revolution, and bombed by Germany in WWII for good measure. Even so, the wrap-around views of the surrounding Rhône valley are epic, stretching all the way to Mont Ventoux.
