Renovation project - Dinner in Châteauneuf-du-Pape
We have just realised that we are only about 10 km from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, now most of you will probably recognise the name
of this famous wine, but the wine actually comes from this commune (and part of the four surrounding communes).
We drive to the village and it is so pretty and old, it really
does not take long to walk around.
One of the nicest views is when you are at the top of the village
and look out over vineyards for as far as the eye can see. (approximately 3,200 ha)
All this wonderful wine within such easy reach.
This is one of the nicest things about France (if you are a wine
drinker) you can choose your favourite wine and visit the area where
it is made!
Unfortunately it is evening when we arrive so only the restaurants
are open. We choose one and find out that the owner is a vintner
(grower and maker of wine).
But we do get to try some with our fabulous dinner at La Part des Anges. Which for some reason does not have a good review on Tripadvisor, so all I can say is, if this is the worst restaurant, we definitely want to go back, because we thought the food, location and service was wonderful
We think we may actually start a wine tour of France, the areas
are so beautifull and diverse
