The Luberon (until 2008 Cotes du Luberon) was known in Germany for the longest time as a source of popular, mostly cheap, rather rustic red wines, which were available in every small wine shop. In the meantime, the region has been somewhat forgotten by us, and thus, the enormous quality increases since the upgrading to AOC as late as in 1988 passed most German wine lovers by.

The area in the very south of the Rhone growing region on the border to Provence is not only spectacular in terms of landscape, but the best wines today are also of astonishing class. The grape variety composition of the area differs only little from the rest of the southern Rhone, only among the whites, higher percentages of Ugni Blanc and above all Vermentino are noticeable again and again, which are hardly found elsewhere in the area. In no case should one overlook the rosé wines of the Luberon, which are not inferior to the far more famous representatives from Provence.
