Reserve de Bonpas Chateauneuf Du Pape 750ml
(Red Rhone Blend) When the Papacy was established in Avignon in the 14th Century Chateauneuf-du-Pape was selected to be the Pope?s summer residence. The seven successive Popes encouraged the wine production and the expanding of the vineyards. The strict way in which wine has been produced has remained a constant factor throughout the history of these vineyards, and acted as the basis for certain provisions when the AC legislation was being drawn up. Chateauneuf-du-Pape was consecrated a Local Appellation in 1936.
