Wine of Luberon appellation
The Luberon Regional Natural Park is the setting for the Luberon vineyards, which spans 36 communes, all located in the southeast of the Vaucluse. There were vineyards in the Luberon back in antiquity. The Romans planted vines in the Pays d’Aigues in particular. In the Middle Ages and during the Renaissance, the vineyards were greatly expanded, especially to the north of the Petit Luberon. The wine producing area also developed in the late 19th century and in the period between the two world wars. In the early 1970’s, the Luberon appellation’s wine producers, who were conscious of the need to modernize, carried out substantial work to this end. Their efforts paid off in 1988 when the Côtes du Luberon wines obtained AOC status. 

The local climate is Mediterranean with the influence of a more continental climate coming in from the Alps and the Rhône Valley. With roughly 2,600 hours of sunshine per year, the Luberon is one of France’s sunniest regions.

The production area for the wines of the Luberon covers approximately 2,500 hectares and produces over 97,000 hectolitres per year. The grape varieties used for the red and rosé wines are mainly Syrah and Grenache (60% minimum), Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault (maximum 20%). The appellation’s other varieties (Picpoul Noir, Counoise Noire, Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc, Pinot Noir) are permitted in the rest of the wine’s composition. The white wines of the Luberon are made from Grenache Blanc, Ugni Blanc (up to 50%), Clairette Blanche, Vermentino (or Rolle), Bourboulenc Blanc and, to a lesser extent, Roussanne and Marsanne.
