Around Châteauneuf-du-Pape there is a landscape of gently sloping slopes and sometimes large plateaus. The characteristic ground is reddish earth covered with round boulders, small and large: Galets or Caillous roulés. At the time, these were carried by the Rhône glacier. In some places, the cobblestone avenue is one and a half to two meters thick. The stones ensure that the grapes ripen completely, because during the day they collect solar heat to radiate it again at night.
