Cave du Lubéron
With lavender filled fields, beautiful farm houses and linen draped tables we find our newest producer and the terrific valued wines of the Lubéron.
Since 1923, the cellars of Cave du Lubéron have been a staple in the heart of Provence. East of Avignon and north of Aix-en-Provence, the vineyard is located on the northern slope of the Lubéron. The long ridge of the mountain, rising to more than 1,000m, cools the region, slowing down grape-ripening. This warm appellation is more capable than many further north of making crisp whites, delicate rosés and elegant reds in which cool-toned Syrah tempers heat-loving Grenache.
With Vincent André, oenologist and director of the Cave, each wine is crafted with care presenting an elegant freshness while delighting the palate.
Full of sunshine in a glass and all under $20, these well balanced wines will transport you to the fragrant Provence, making it easy to understand why the world loves Lubéron.
What to expect
Alidon Rosé, Luberon, 2020
82% Grenache/13% Syrah/3% Clairette/2% Cinsault
A Provence style rosé with notes of sour cherries, orange creamsicle, and chalky minerality. The palate is super textural - weighty, soft and plush with a smooth silky finish. This is your everyday rosé!
Alidon Rouge, Luberon, 2019
70% Syrah/30% Grenache
Amazing value red! A juicy, fruity and woodsy nose that keeps you coming back for more. Blackberry, blueberry, cherry, red current, garrigue, graphite and savoury herbs. A perfect red for summer that would be even more refreshing with a slight chill.

80% Vermentino/20% Grenache Blanc
Pale yellow with slightly golden reflections. Exotic fruits, pineapple, passion fruit underlined by citrus. Fresh finish with lovely texture.
