An emblematic estate, La Cavale is both a great wine and a unique place to live, responding to the oenotourism and environmental project of Paul Dubrule, its owner.

The adventure began in the 1970s in Cadenet, at the place called Travers du Faridoux et Cavale, it is there that Mr Dubrule acquired a sheepfold surrounded by 7 hectares of vines. Since 1986, Jean-Paul Aubert, technical director has been working on the creation of wines. The cellar stands at the crossroads, in the very heart of the Luberon Natural Park. Between 2012 and 2017, a new cellar was built. Designed by the renowned architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, it welcomes visitors in an idyllic setting.

The 42 hectares of vines, planted in eight varieties and divided into
Cucuron, Vaugines, Lourmarin and Cadenet, produce wines of the Luberon appellation. The vintages are available in three ranges: Petite Cavale (rosé, red and white), La Cavale (red and white) and our standard, Grande Cavale (red), vinified only in the best years. La Cavale has been in organic conversion for 2 years and will be certified for the 2020 vintage.
