Archives affirm Château La Nerthe's existence as early as 1560, while suggesting an even more distant past dating to the dawn of the region's wine culture in the 12th century making it one of Châteauneuf's oldest estates. Located in the heart of the Châteauneuf du Pape AOC region of southern France not far from Avignon, the 225 acres of Château La Nerthe vineyards are located in a single block around the Château and have been certified Organic since 1998.

The terroir is very typical for the region: vineyards runs along a slope, at the top of which the vines dig their roots into soils of sandy clay, on the surface there is a layer of the famous galettes, large, round, well worn stones that originated in the Alps, having been carried down to the Rhone by the glaciers of previous ice ages. The further down the slope of the vineyard you travel, the more these stones dominate. All 14 of the permitted primary varietals are planted Grenache dominates 62% of vineyards and the vines average over 40 years old. Château La Nerthe is THE expression of Châteauneuf du Pape.
