About Château la Canorgue

Château la Canorgue is located between Bonnieux, Avignon and Aix en Provence, in the heart of the Luberon. Built on the foundations of an ancient Roman villa, but owes its name to the many underground pipes that the Romans built. Château la Canorgue seduces you with its charm, its fountains, guarded by Neptune and his dolphins, the small chapel and the majestic terrace. This all fits perfectly and gives a feeling of going back in time.

Backed up by firm acidity and more mineral backbone than one usually finds in a southern white. Great food wine!
