Delicious local wines include, from Lourmarin, Chateau Fontvert, Chateau Constantin, and the Maison Tardieu-Lauren. Elsewhere in the Luberon you can find Chateau La Canorgue, Domaine de la Citadelle and Chateau de Fontenille; these are all well-structured, reasonably priced Rhone valley wines.

A little further afield, you can visit, taste and buy in Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de-Venise and the mighty Chateauneuf-du-Pape. ot shoot down to the coast and try the white wines of cassis, and the complex, beautiful reds, white and rosés from Bandol.

 

A personal favourite is the Domaine de Trevallon in St Etienne du Gres. Quite expensive, and sublime.
