Rasteau AOC

Rasteau is a parish in the southern Rhône valley, located roughly 15 miles (24 km) northeast of the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The village and its vineyards are perhaps best known for their sweet red vin doux naturel, but they also produce dry wine (red, rosé and white). (info from wine-searcher.com)
