Everyone gather to try the Vin of Rasteau
Everything went out fast

Old village perched on a hill, it is located halfway between Vaison la Romaine and Orange. A Romanesque church and ruins of a medieval castle overlooking the village whose elegant bell tower overlooks the vineyard and the valley of Ouvèze. 

Rasteau has always lived from its agricultural production. First of all, the cultivation of olive trees and then vines. The great freeze of 1956 that decimated the olive trees throughout the South of France has greatly accelerated the trend toward virtual monoculture of the vine that prevails today in Rasteau. The vineyard with Three Names: "Cotes du Rhone" " Rasteau "and" Natural Sweet Wine Rasteau ".

From the "Place de l'Apparent", a narrow cobbled sloping street leads to the old village and its chapel Notre Dame des Vignerons dating from the seventeenth and renovated in 1957 / 1961. A little further you will find the old laundry composed of a fountain and two pools, once used by the washerwomen ...
Continue your way towards the "Place de l'Horloge" (the belfry), located under the Portalet gateway opened in 1753 and topped by a tower that houses the clock, which dates from 1635. It was at one time, the main entrance of the village
