Description


This is a fascinating 1852 map of the French department of Vaucluse, France. Vaucluse is the center of wine production in the southern Rhone. Some of the smartest wines in France can be found here. There is also a very strong movement towards the adoption of organic and biodynamic viticulture and natural wine making. The area includes the Cotes du Rhone, Luberon, and Gigondas wine appellations, just to name a few. The map proper is surrounded by elaborate decorative engravings designed to illustrate both the natural beauty and trade richness of the land. There is a short textual history of the regions depicted on both the left and right sides of the map. Published by V. Levasseur in the 1852 edition of his Atlas National de la France Illustree.
