The characteristics of wines in Luberon Coeur de Provence

PDO Luberon, PDO Ventoux, PGI Vaucluse: our vineyards belong to the family of wines of the Rhône Valley but are distinguished by their local characteristics. Discover the wines of our appellations: rosé wines, red wines, white wines.

The special characteristics of our local grape varieties

The terroir and the climate are incomparable: apart from the sunshine of 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.
Cultivated on a light, limestone and sandy soil, the grape varieties give a special expression.

Rosé Wines

With their surprisingly exuberant aromas, the rosés are made from cinsault, grenache and syrah. A pretty pink in hue, they give off perfumes of red fruits and citrus fruits. Perfect from aperitif time onwards, they are the ideal choice to accompany your barbecues and exotic dishes.

 

White Wines

These lively and charming whites will certainly make an impression on you. Produced mainly from Grenache blanc and vermentino grapes, they offer the perfect accompaniment to the region's goat cheeses. 

 

Red Wines

These distinguished wines, made from the emblematic Rhône Valley grape varieties, Syrah and Grenache, boast a sparkling freshness and a delicately spicy finish. Perfect with Provençal cuisine, from pork to lamb...

Zoom on Appellations

The departmental D900 road,  which crosses the Calavon valley to the north of the Luberon marks the boundary between the two appellations: PDO Ventoux in the north and PDO Luberon in the south. Each appellation contains grape varieties which must be integrated into the wine. Other wines, composed of a single grape variety or with varieties not recognised in the PDO Ventoux or Luberon appellations, are classified as PGI Vaucluse.
