Pope Clement: the Wine­grow­ing Pope

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

The vine­yards of Château Pape-clé­ment were planted on the im­pulse of the Arch­bishop of Bordeaux, the fu­ture Pope Clement V. When he took the Avi­gnon Pa­pacy, Pope Clement V did not for­get his na­tive lands; he con­structed large cas­tles there. These châteaux, which are par­tic­u­larly well-pre­served, pro­pose tours that sat­isfy peo­ple of all ages: Ro­que­tail­lade, Vil­lan­draut, Bu­dos. They each present a beau­ti­ful and fam­ily-friendly way of unit­ing wine, his­tory and her­itage.
