Vacqueyras Wine


Vacqueyras is a village in the Southern Rhone that was the second after Gigondas to get its own appellation. The red wines must be at least 50% Grenache, with the rest comprised of Syrah, Mourvedre, and Cinsaut. A small amount of white and rose wine is also made. Especially as quality in the appellation has been increasing while prices have remained reasonable, it is a great place to explore for lovers of Chateauneuf du Pape.
