What could be a dry experience is a delightful one. The truffle displays are fascinating and there is a lovely display of all the Luberon wines. Sale prices are good too! Set in a historic old hotel, it is well worth a visit.

Just a mile or so out of Menerbes, this place is worth an hour or so visit if you are visiting Menerbes or Oppede. Located in the Citadelle winery, there is a small museum devoted to corkscrews. Over 1250. Range from simple to R rated....More
