Châteauneuf has a substantial historic presence. Its influence stretches back to the time of the popes installed in Avignon in the 14th century. At that time, Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the summer residence of the Papacy (John XXII, Clément V, Urbain V and Innocent V), which sourced its wine from the surrounding area.

The vineyards are comprised of the stones that once lined the bed of the Rhone river. These stones, which can be as large as softballs, store heat from the daytime sun to keep the vines warm at night. These vineyards are perfectly suited for low-yielding Grenache plantings, giving finess and subtlety to a wine characterized by opulence and warmth. Typical to the Chapoutier style of mono-varietal bottlings, “La Bernardine” Blanc is made with only one grape varietal - Grenache Blanc.
