Chateauneuf du Pape

chateauneuf9Chateauneuf du Pape is 13km out of Avignon.  Chateauneuf du Pape is where the strongest full bodied wines are made in France.  My opinion.  The picture above is the old Chateau that was blown up during WWII by two German soldiers who were being held captive.  The town of Chateauneuf du Pape is surounded by vineyards and has over 100 wine tasting Caves encased within a three block radius.  My favorite Chateauneuf wine is from the cave of Eddie Feraud.
