Wine of Vacqueyras appellation
The Vacqueyras appellation is in the villages of Vacqueyras and Sarrian, in the Vaucluse department, at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail hills. The vineyards sit on alluvial soils and Riss (Quaternary) glacial terraces. The climate is hot and dry, with a great deal of sunshine. 

In 1955 Vacqueyras became one of the first villages in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation to earn its own sub-appellation: Côtes du Rhône Vacqueyras. In 1967 it was elevated to Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Vacqueyras, and in 1990 it was awarded its own independent appellation. 

Red wines, which account for 97% of the production of Vacqueyras, are made from at least 50% Grenache Noir, at least 20% Syrah and/or Mourvèdre, and up to 10% of the other varieties permitted in Côtes-du-Rhône wines (except Carignan). Rosé wines, which make up just 1% of production, are up to 60% Grenache blended with at least 15% Mourvèdre and/or Cinsault. The white wines, 2% of production, are made from Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier, with no single variety surpassing 80%. 

Some of the best wines of Vacqueyras are crafted by producers like Domaine Le Sang des Cailloux, Château des Tours, and Maison Perrin et Fils.
