Wine cellar - La Cavale
Visit an iconic estate and participate in interactive discovery workshops around wine. La Cavale, is a great wine and a unique place to live in the South Luberon.
An emblematic estate, La Cavale is both a great wine and a unique place of life that responds to the wine tourism and environmental project of Paul Dubrule, its owner.
The adventure began in the 1970s in Cadenet, instead known as 'Travers du Faridoux and Cavale', this is where Mr. Dubrule acquired a sheepfold surrounded by 7 hectares of vineyards. Since 1986, Jean-Paul Aubert, Technical Director has been working on the creation of wines. The winery rises at the crossroads, in the very heart of the Luberon Regional Natural Park. Between 2012 and 2017, a new cellar was created. Designed by renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, it welcomes visitors in an idyllic setting.
La Cavale has been in organic conversion for 3 years and will be certified for the 2020 vintage.
