- The Lavau family has been in the wine business for several generations, originally as growers selling to the bulk wine market, and finally, with the last passing of the baton to Frederic and Benoit Lavau, to bottling Rhône wines under the family name. Their breadth spreads from Gigondas though Tavel, but their hidden gem comes from the overachieving village of Valréas.
