The growing area extends over the communes of Camaret-sur-Aigues, Jonquières, Travaillan and Violès, in the departement of Vaucluse. In the Middle Ages, when crossing the vast, bandit-infested “forest” of scrubland, you were holding your life in your hands. All you could do was commit your soul to God. Maybe this is the origin of the name Plan de Dieu (God’s Plain). Since those days, the area has been planted with vines, which now cover an area of 1,500 hectares at an altitude of 110 metres, and there are only a few remaining patches of woodland. In 2005, the wines were granted Côtes du Rhône Villages status, the appellation applying only to still reds. To give it a more distinct identity, they designed a special bottle. It features the Plan de Dieu inscription and the vineyard’s coat-of-arms: a grape cluster surmounted by a halo.
