The cellar of La Cavale, designed by contemporary architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte at the behest of Paul Dubrule, reflects its owner's wish to create both an educational and playful oenotouristic place, where to sell his wines. This beautiful winery built by Les Compagnons du Devoir (a traditional French fraternity of craftsmen) with hand-hewn stones from the Luberon, rises at the crossroad between the villages of Vaugines, Cucuron and Lourmarin, where La Cavale's vineyard extends over 42 hectares. Planted with vines of Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan and Syrah, the estate offers three different brands of red, white and rosé wines. Vinified under the supervision of technical director Jean-Paul Aubert, and famous consulting oenologist Alain Graillot, from Crozes Hermitage, these are: Petite Cavale, La Cavale and Grande Cavale that is produced solely in great vintages.
Our team of attentive professionals will greet you every day from 10 am to 7 am during the high season and 10:30 am to 6:30 pm in the off- season. In our 500 m² boutique, we offer our wines and olive oils and a large selection of regional specialties, as well as more rare and precious wines and spirits from other regions of the world. Each one of our products has been carefully chosen to represent la Provence and particularly Le Luberon and its natural riches. We are pleased to carry renowned brands as well as brands of young, dynamic business owners who are proud of their region and aware of the need to protect our cultural and environmental heritage. We have also selected local artisans and crafstmen/women.
In season, our terrace with its beautiful view of the Luberon welcomes you for a relaxing moment in the shade of our umbrellas for drinks and light fares. On Thursday evenings, come and taste our local specialties from 6pm to 9pm while enjoying some music.
We look forward to the great pleasure of welcoming you to La Cavale and sharing the joy of wines with you during our discovery workshops.
We welcome children while parents are tasting or shopping!
Children tasting workshop: free
To make sure that no one is left out of the holiday fun, we have created a special workshop for children. They can try 5 to 6 different grape juices and select the one they like best.They will be shown how to sniff, swirl, taste and spit just like wine experts. At the end of the session, they will be given a small diploma to take home with their name on it!
