The soil of the vineyards for Chateauneuf du Pape are varying even if they are situated near each other: Slopes or terrasses covered with big stones or with lime stones, some plots are with clay and other plots more sandy. 
Since 2014 the vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique.

All the Wines (except those of IGP) are called Vieilles Vignes, and this is reasonable as 95% of the vines are quite old - also those in the fields of Cotes du Rhone.
