Chateauneuf du Pape, Rhone

Domaine de la Solitude has one of the longest histories in the Rhone Valley. The Barberin family who founded the estate can trace their roots in Chateauneuf du Pape back to the 1604. Before that, the family was well known in their native land of Italy. They were quite an established family as far back as the 13th century. In fact, Maffeo Barberini became the Pope, using the name of Urbain VIII. Two of the nephews of Maffeo Barberini became Cardinals and moved to Avignon. Perhaps that move was due to issues related to loud accusations about destroying historic monuments so the materials could be used to create, new, palatial estates and palaces for their personal use. That move to Avignon led the family to wine making in Chateauneuf du Pape.
