A bit of history:

Châteauneuf-de-Gadagne, about ten kilometers from Avignon, is a village whose wine was already much appreciated by the Popes and now officially recognized under the name Côtes du Rhône Villages Gadagne. The Vine feeds on a privileged sunshine located on a long plateau of rolled pebbles. The terroir reminds us of a neighbor not so far away: the Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyard.
Grenache is the strong grape variety of the appellation. You can buy the wines in the 3 colors: red, rosé and white in the 7 particular estates and the cooperative winery.

Hike from the Plateau de Campbeau

If you opt for hiking, then we are happy to share with you the route proposed by the Town Hall: 5 km between nature, vineyards and beautiful buildings. Sometimes you walk not far from the road but the traffic is not very important. You will feel safe there and may come across a few tractors.
From the heights of the village, the panorama is fantastic: on one side, we observe the Géant de Provence: our famous Mont-Ventoux, the Monts de Vaucluse, the Luberon and the Alpilles or the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Open your eyes wide, will you know the Castle of Thouzon?
Then on the other side of the village strolling around the vineyard, one can see among others Avignon and its famous Palais des Papes.
