A friend of ours in Avignon took us on an amazing tour of this small part of the Rhone wine region. It included lunch at l'Oustalet (restaurantoustalet.com)in the small town of Gigondas. We sat outdoors and had an amazing meal. The place settings were just one minor (yet charming) detail of a very memorable lunch. Just next door is a tasting room where you can sample many of the regions wines. Nearby are Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Vacqueryas which had one of our favorite wineries, Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux.
