The Luberon Wine region of Provence

The wine region of Luberon previously known as the Cotes du Luberon, embraces the outlines of the Luberon mountain range. Another specificity about these wines is that they are considered to be mountain wines in a mountain appellation. Because of the variations in temperature, the red wines are crisp and the white wines are elegant and floral.

This unique wine region of France is located between to two famous wine regions: Côte du Rhone & Provence. The Luberon region enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate. Over the years, the region has preserved its cultural and natural heritage. Vines have thrived here since antiquity and dominate the unspoilt natural environment.

The Luberon Regional Park

The AOC of the Luberon was created in 1988. Another quite unique fact about the appellation is that it is set in the Luberon Regional Park. Grassland, plateau, cliffs, deep gorge, pine, cedar or oak forest, garrigue, alluvial plain.

The Luberon displays a mosaic of natural habitats. This region is home to an exceptional biodiversity: 1,800 species of plants, 135 species of birds, 2,300 species of butterflies. This area is therefore quite a unique setting for wine growing.

The Luberon Wines

The AOC Luberon area produces red, white and rosé wines. The red wines possess aromas of dark fruit, truffle, leather and undergrowth and are big wines that are racy on the palate. The rosés wines are full and expressive. The white wines release fine notes of vineyard peach, apricot, lime blossom, honeysuckle, and are floral, lively and well-balanced on the palate.

The main grape varieties that are used in the production of wines include Mourvèdre, Grenache and Syrah (for red wines) a grape that is also widely used in Côtes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape wines. For the white wines, the main grapes include Clairette, Roussanne or Ugni Blanc.

Your Provence Wine tour

On this full day wine tour, visit 3 family-owned wineries that include a technical tour of the installations: vats and ageing cellars. During the tour, you will learn about the wine making process, from the vine to the bottle. Finally, conclude your winery tours with tastings of delicate and aromatic reds, whites or rosés wines.

After the visits we will return to Aix en Provence and that will be the end of our services. Please note that we also organize private wine tours to other wine regions including Châteauneuf du Pape, Sainte-Victoire Côteaux de Provence; we also operate walking tours, food tours, excursions to the lavender fields.
