Right on Popes’ Palace Square, you will find the Embassy of the Côtes-du-Rhône wines, standing proudly and offering a warm welcome. Avignon is the capital of Rhône valley wines, Avignon is the heart of the wine-producing region and the place to taste the divine nectar, the drink of the Popes.
Le Carré du Palais
Côtes-du-Rhône wines had to have an embassy worthy of the Rhône valley wines in Avignon, the wine capital. Just past the Place de l’Horloge, just before your eyes drink in the Palace of the Popes, do stop in at the Carré du Palais. In this renovated 19th century building, everything has come together to help you discover the wines of the Rhône valley. The cellar at Carré du Palais holds 10,000 bottles, and in that cellar the sommelier proposes a new tasting every single day. There is a School of Wine to introduce you to exploring the aromas in the wines and the expertise of the winemakers throughout the Rhône valley. And of course, there is a restaurant where the Chef sublimates wine and food pairings for total taste pleasure.
