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 wraparound views of the surrounding Rhône valley are epic, stretching all the way to Mont Ventoux.
