Presentation

This cooperative is the epitome of Provence. At the foot of the hills so dear to Marcel Pagnol, it perpetuates the expertise of winemakers committed to the production of typical and honest wines. 

Extra

Cave des Vignerons cooperative Garlaban participates almost each month of the year in local festivals: ‘primeur’ wine festival in October, Allauch wine fair in November, Christmas markets in December, Aubagne flower fair in April or the donkey festival in May.

Original and unusual

The family of the Lumière brothers, inventors of cinema, owned vineyards in La Ciotat that they had acquired at the end of the 19th century. After becoming rich and famous, Antoine Lumière reunited with the profession of his ancestors. He has also carried out Autochrome plates (the ancestors of modern prints photos) at the time of harvest at the beginning of the 20th century.
