Aubignan (Aubinhan in Occitan) is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. A stone's throw from Beaumes-de-Venise and the famous Côtes du Rhône vineyards, Aubignan is, itself, locally renown not only for the production of wine but of young vines and vine grafts.

Twin towns[edit]

The commune is twinned with Cheseaux-sur-Lausanne, Switzerland.
