The special characteristics of our local grape varieties

The terroir and the climate are incomparable: in addition to the sunshine peculiar to the south, it is above all the benefit of the cool nights in summer that favors the slow maturation of the grapes and the perfect harmony of their fragrances.
Grown on light, calcareous and sandy soil, the grape varieties give off a very special expression.

The Rosé Wines

Surprising by their exuberant aromas, rosés are made from Cinsault, Grenache and Syrah. With a pretty pink color, they exude scents of red fruits and citrus fruits. At ease as an aperitif, they are perfect to accompany barbecues and exotic dishes.

White Wines

Lively and charming, they will definitely mark you. Made with Grenache Blanc and Vermentino varieties in particular, white wines will be the best companions for goat cheeses in the region.

Red Wines

Made from the emblematic grape varieties of the Rhone Valley, Syrah and Grenache, these are racy wines with sparkling freshness and delicately spicy finishes. Perfect with Provençal cuisine, from pork to lamb...

Zoom on appellations

The departmental D900 which crosses the Calavon valley in the north of the Luberon ensures the boundary between the two appellations: AOP Ventoux in the north and AOP Luberon in the south. Each appellation contains mandatory grape varieties to integrate into the wine. Other wines, composed with a single grape variety or with grape varieties not recognized in the AOP Ventoux or Luberon appellations, will be classified in IGP Vaucluse.
