Wine tasting

In the summer of 2003 the Luberon Park inaugurated the new vintner trail around the village of Cucuron, developed in collaboration with the Musée Dydier on the theme of vineyard history. The new stroll offers two itineraries to the east and to the west of the village, and the walk takes about 3 hours in all. The trail is marked with information signs, and can end with a tasting in the Cucuron cellars. More details and contact numbers for local wine cellers
