At the summit the vestiges of the ruined château – wall, tower and lower hall built by the popes in the 14th century as a summer residence to escape the city heat of Avignon. It was the popes who planted the town's first vineyards. In the afternoon visit two different vineyards - first a winemaker with 8ha vineyard based exclusively on the appellation and second a 43ha family estate owned by five generations of wine-producers.
