Uninhabited since prehistoric times, colonized by the Romans and lordship of the Orange princes in the Middle Ages, Gigondas is a village in the Haut Vaucluse located at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmirail. There are several hypotheses on the origin of its name: it comes from gignit undas which means "sprung from the waters" or even from Jucundas, legionnaire and first owner of the place. Still, its Roman name "Jocunditas" means joy or jubilation, very suitable for this small village of 700 inhabitants who devote themselves to the cultivation of the vine and the pleasures of wine.
