Discovering the food and wine of the Luberon region during the RWC

By now, you’ve probably got the picture. There’s not much the Luberon region, wedged in-between Marseille and Avignon in the countryside of southern France, doesn’t do well. 

And the region’s food and wine is no different. 

Rugby News and some close friends spent a week in Luberon during the Rugby World Cup with our mates from Destination Luberon and ate and drank our way into seriously tight pants by the end of it. 

Here’s a little of what we learnt.

I’ll get to the fine dining in a moment, but for me, there’s nothing better than stumbling across a quaint restaurant in a little town and settling in for an unplanned long lunch. 

Most restaurants throughout the Luberon’s 30 small villages offer a Plat du Jour every day. A two or three course set lunch menu, typically with a carafe of wine, for a fraction of the cost of their dinner menu.
