Being in Provence, multiple visits to producers of all kinds of local specialities is a welcome must. When in Luberon, I particularily recommend the eco and biodynamic wines from Chateau Fontvert.
Fontvert produces, among other, a stunnig rosé. The wine expert and guy behind it all, Yoann Malandain, took us for a ride in the wineyards, showed the caves – and sold “some” wine (me, one bottle, Ulla the photographer who lives in the area bought some 25 liters of high quality wines;).
Buying lavendel honey is another must, why not in the famous and beautiful hilltop village of Bonnieux, Luberon, directly from the Apiculteurs Julie and Stephane Negrin?
Going Northeast, to Alpes de Haute Provence, the Banon goat cheese is well known and easy to recognise in it’s chestnut leaf.
In Var, Pays de Fayence, we visited olive oil farms, vinegar, foi gras at Ferme Allexandre in Callianand wine makers such as Val d’Iris. What a pleasure!
