Best Thing Popes Ever Did--Chateauneuf des Papes

Throughout the Middle Ages the RCC would not give the wine to the congregants in the mass, just a crust of bread, and the priests kept the good stuff for themselves. Calvin may have been the first Reformer in France to give The Lord's Supper in both elements in a cave near Poitier in France in 1533 (literal underground church). We stopped on the ROME TO GENEVA CHURCH HISTORY TOUR to see and experience the best thing the popes ever did, the cultivation of the richest wine region in France and in the world, Chateauneuf des Papes (the new castle of the popes). The castle here was also a garrison for the multi-national mercenary papal armies plundering, killing, and burning their way through Huguenot south of France.
