Cairanne wine market

One of the southern Côtes du Rhône named villages (i.e. can label its wine with the village name rather than as generic Côtes du Rhône) Cairanne (84 Vaucluse, Provence) holds a Marché aux Vins 15-16 April 2017

In mid-summer the village of Cairanne holds its Wine Festival 22 July 2018 – see

A gathering of wine lovers from the southern parts of the Cotes du Rhone whine region.
A Market with thirty wine producers from Cairanne and surroundings : Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de -Venise, Vinsobres, Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Cairanne is worth a visit at any time to explore the Vieux Village, the old village on top of the hill, which boasts well- preserved fortifications of the Knights Hospitalers dating back to the 12th century!

The climate here is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers bringing excellent ripening potential to the Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre grapes used to produce most of the red wines

Sun-drenched hillsides, the scents of the garrigue, a mischievous river which changes its spelling… Cairanne is a delightful village, which comes into view around a rocky outcrop and charms visitors with its red, rosé and white wines. The strengths of the Cairanne appellation are a “village” feel, developed by wine-growers over several generations , and a warm, dry climate, which makes for harmonious, full-flavoured wines.
