Independent community area in the department Vaucluse in the southern French appellation Cotes du Rhone-Villages (see the AOC regulations there). The municipality has been allowed to use the name on the label lead. Viticulture developed in the 13th century under the influence of the Counts of Toulouse. A wine brotherhood was founded here as early as 1685. This was brought back to life in 1985 under the name "Confrérie des Chevaliers du Gouste-Séguret Compagnons de Saint Vincent". Every year in August, under their patronage, there is a wine festival in honor of Saint Vincent. The vineyards cover 270 hectares of vineyards on clay and limestone soils. Red, rosé and white wines are produced. Well-known producers are Jean-Pierre Brotte, Domaine de Cabasse, Domaine Garancière and Domaine du Sommier.
