The best places to visit when exploring Grenache grapes
Avignon, Part Deux
I would be remiss, and in fact a bit of a dolt, if I didn’t recommend that you spend some time soaking in the history and culture of the city of Avignon. This is a great walking city full of stunning architecture that ranges from the Palace of the Popes, listed as a Unesco Heritage Site, to a multitude of churches which display the evolution of style through the Middle Ages.
There are four walks laid out by the city to help visitors discover the rich beauty of this lovely site. Visit the famous pont d’Avignon, walk the old alleyways and side streets, and soak in the rich tapestry created by the private mansions added to the city scape in the 18th and 19th centuries.
Wine is a beautiful thing, but it’s not everything. Go in search of Grenache and discover the history that is such an intrinsic part of the beauty we find in the glass. Enjoy Grenache in Avignon, life can’t get much better.
