For the longest time, the Luberon (until 2008 Cotes du Luberon) was known in Germany as a source of popular, mostly inexpensive, rather rustic red wines that were available in every small wine shop. In the meantime, the region has been somewhat forgotten by us, and so the enormous increases in quality since the upgrading to an AOC, which only took place in 1988, have passed most German wine lovers by.

The area in the very south of the Rhone wine-growing region on the border with 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 slightly from the rest of the southern Rhone, only in the case of the whites do you notice higher proportions of Ugni Blanc and above all Vermentino, which you hardly ever find elsewhere in the area. The rosé wines of the Luberon, which are not inferior to the more famous representatives from Provence, should not be overlooked.
