FIVE OF THESE THINGS ARE NOT LIKE THE OTHERS.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a village in the Rhone region of southeastern France. It is also an AOC and, as is the case with most European wine, is the name given wines from the area. It is also the name of what once was a magnificent castle used by various Popes when the papacy was located in Avignon. The name literally means “new chateau of the pope.”

 

Wine that can be labeled Chateauneuf-du-Pape can contain up to eighteen grape varieties. There are 18 varieties listed below. But only 13 of them can legally be used in making Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Mark the five interlopers that should NOT be in the list of varieties that can be included in Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
