Visan

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 additionally list. Viticulture was promoted here in the Middle Ages by the Templar order. From 1317 until the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789, the area was part of the "Enclave des papes" (papal possessions). The vineyards cover 420 hectares of vineyards on stony and calcareous reddish clay soils. Red, rosé and white wines are produced. A special wine is the “Cuvée du Marot”, which is only produced in small quantities and is tasted at the annual wine festival in July. Only grapes from vines over 50 years old are used for this. Well-known producers are Cave Cooperative Les Coteaux Visan, Domaine de la Cantharide, Domaine de la Costechaude and Clos du Père Clément.
