Description to Luberon AOC
Appellation for white, rosé and red wines in the department Vaucluse in the southern section of the wine-growing region Rhone, It is named after the limestone rock mountain range southeast of Avignon in southern France. Up to the 2008 vintage, the name was Côtes du Luberon (the reason for the renaming is the clearer identification for the consumer). The recognition in 1988 is primarily due to the millionaire Jean-Louis Chancel, who set high quality standards with the wines of his Château Val-Joanis winery. The vineyards cover 2,700 hectares of vines on the left bank of the Rhone in 36 municipalities between Cavaillon in the west and Manosque in the east. It is a matter of slopes with limestone floors.
