ORIGINE DU CIGARE: After a spate of reports of extraterrestrial visitors to France, the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape of the Rhône valley, passes laws forbidding flying cigar landings, take offs, and flyovers, circa 1954. The “Cigare” series of wines is an homage made since 1984 by Boonny Doon Vineyard.
