The Provençal perched villages all different producing all Wines
it is a village located in the Haut Vaucluse, north of the dentelles de Montmirail and west of Mont Ventoux. The village is built at the foot of a hill topped by its ruined feudal castle. Séguret is fortunate to be one of the most beautiful villages in France and to deserve this distinction.
Between Vaison-La-Romaine and Orange, facing Mont Ventoux and the Dentelles de Montmirail, overlooking the Ouvèze valley, the village of Rasteau clings to the hillsides of its houses around its three bell towers.
In 1994, the AOC Rasteau was awarded to the Natural Sweet Wines and in 2010 the Tranquillas de Rasteau Red wines were awarded the Cru Gigondas Appelation
Located on the highest part of the village, where the remains of the castle still stand, this walk links the medieval history of the site to that of the vine and wine.
- At the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail
- Climbing walks
Inside the village starts a road that then turns into a road that can be used by vehicles and provides access to former red gypsum mines, the "Chambre du Turc" and the foot of the "Dentelles" while passing in front of the Vacqueyras menhir.
During the 14th and 15th centuries, the village was surrounded by fortifications supported by square towers and bordered by a moat. Although this was filled in 1830, part of the ramparts opened by a door that leads to the square where the church and the castle are located remain.
