The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • François Dauvergne and Jean François Ranvier are two wine lovers who decided to pursue their dreams by creating their own wines. They are involved in each step of the creation, from wine growing & wine making to bottling, thanks to strong partnerships with wine growers in the Rhône Valley.
  • The vines thrive on the Luberon mountain slopes. They benefit from exceptional growing conditions in a climate which is Provençal with an Alpine influence. Due to the region’s cooler nights, Luberon wines are naturally blessed with lovely balance.
  • The Luberon AOP has the good fortune of being fully contained within the Luberon Regional Nature Park, a biosphere reserve recognized by Unesco.
Harvest Notes
