Unfortunately there is no information about Ventoux AOC available.
Description to Ventoux AOC
The appellation, named after the 1,912 metre high Mont Ventoux, is located in the southern part of the Rhône wine region. Until the 2008 vintage, the appellation was called Côtes du Ventoux (the reason for the renaming is to make it clearer to the consumer). In 1951, the area was elevated to VDQS and finally to AOC in 1973. The vineyards cover some 7,700 hectares of vineyards in 51 communes on the left bank of the Rhône in the Département of Vaucluse between Vaison-la-Romaine in the north and Apt in the south. Viticulture already existed here in the first century BC, as evidenced by excavations near Mazan. In the Middle Ages, the quality standard was raised by the large monasteries, especially during the presence of the Popes in Avignon from 1309 to 1414. The wine was also supplied to the French royal houses.
