Provence

The Provence wine region, which stretches from Avignon to the Alpes Maritimes and the Alpilles to the Esterel mountains, covers an area of ​​27,000 hectares of vines. Widely known for its rosé wines, Provence produces 88%. 3 major appellations: Côtes-de-Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence and Coteaux Varois cohabit with more confidential appellations on a very fragmented soil whose history dates back to 2600 years. It was indeed the Phoenicians who introduced the vine into the region and the monastic orders which developed it conscientiously in the Middle Ages. Known as the first vineyard in France, the region of the wines of Provence benefits from the specificities of two large geological groups. On one side the scrubland on a limestone soil and on the other, the bush on a crystalline soil. The Mistral, local wind, protects vines from moisture-related diseases. A dozen emblematic grape varieties flourish here to produce red, white and rosé wines from Provence.
