The Long Tubi adventure: our passionate story
Our know-how in the production of Provence wines

- In 2013, it was with the pride of the passionate and the critical eye of the professional that we released our first cuvées.
- In 2014, many medals come to encourage our work and our convictions !
- The first results of the 2015 competitions continue to reward our efforts

Nourish the land of Provence with our influences
Training the vines to guide the personality of our wines ... that's the daily game we play. Our stories and mixed temperaments shape the identity of our vintages.
