Châteauneuf-du-Pape means “The Pope’s new castle” in French, and this appellation has some of the most acclaimed wines throughout the country. Both the name and its association with wine has all to do with Pope Clement V. The aforementioned Pope was Archbishop of Bordeaux, and a lover of Bordeaux wines. When he transferred the papacy to Avignon, he confirmed that Avignon had great potential for winemaking, and thus, the wines produced in this region were known as “Le Vin de Pape,” or “The Pope’s Wine.” It was eventually renamed and referred to as “Châteauneuf-du-Pape.”
