Château de Calavon
Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence

Château de Calavon, a domain of 115 acres, is located in Lambesc, in the heart of the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence appellation. It is the first winery to be founded in this village. Owned by the Audibert family for five generations, it is now run by Michel Audibert and his team.

The vines are planted on terraces facing southeast, in stony soil that is a mixture of limestone and clay. The grape varieties grown for red and rosé wines are Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan, and Cinsault. For whites, varieties include Vermentino and Clairette.

The estate uses traditional methods of cultivation, which show respect for nature, terroir, and environment. No pesticides, herbicides, or chemical products are used in the vineyards, as the estate is in the process of converting to organic production. Château de Calavon produces wines that are ready to drink but still able to age.
