The quaint little village of Vacqueyras nestles beneath the imposing rock edifice of the Dentelles de Montmirail, with Gigondas and Beaumes-de-Venise a couple of kilometres either side.The Ch√Ęteau des Tours estate is 5km southwest of the village (heading towards Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape), in the hamlet of Les Sablons.

The vineyards on the plain feature a stony, clay soil. Those on the slopes are on a light sandy topsoil covering marne rock.
