One of my favourite places was the gorgeous town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Our Scenic Freechoice tour was very informative and our first stop involved a visit to the medieval castle ruins. We then continued to the main
town square for a fascinating walking tour with our local guide followed by some free time to explore.
The next part of our tour was a visit to one of the wineries. This region is extremely fertile and is famous for its pebbled vineyards. Many sized rocks cover the vineyards and we learnt about how unique this is as well as how special
the wine is from the region. The pebbles protect the crop from the elements, and act as an insulator in the summer and winter months.
My advice when you visit, is to pick up some white wine as a souvenir as it is almost impossible to buy elsewhere.
