In the heart of Pays d’Aix, Château de Calavon belongs to the Audibert family, who have been making wine in Lambesc for 5 generations. It is, without doubt, the oldest vineyard in the surrounding area. This 60 hectare vineyard was first cultivated by the Princes of Orange before being divided up after the French Revolution and slowly reconstructed through the centuries. In the middle of the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence area, the history of the Château is closely linked to the wine tradition.
Today, after major works of modernization both in the cellar and vineyard, Michel Audibert perpetuates tradition, aiming for the highest quality, such as in the elaboration of a white wine of great finesse, and exceptional red wines.
Lambesc, the "Petite Venise aixoise"
The village of Lambesc is well-known both for its historical and economic reputation. Back in the 18th century, Lambesc hosted the General Assembly of the Villages of Provence, and was known as ‘The Little Venice of Aix’. Many private mansions still reflect that period.
Today, the village is also known for its exceptional terroir, since it is the most important wine production of the département. Lambesc is, therefore, an inevitable stopover on the Route des Vins de Provence.
