Provence Wine

Sun-soaked Provence – home of the celebrated destinations of St. Tropez and Cannes, and beloved retreat of Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, and Van Gogh – is also the birthplace of the world’s finest dry rosé wines. These elegant pinks, made from red grapes, are known for offering the body of a red wine with the crispness of a white. In France today, rosé is so loved that it outsells white wine. And in the U.S., it has been one of the fastest growing categories for six years running. Discover the dry pink!

 

Also worth seeking out are the outstanding reds (and some whites) of the sub-regions of Bandol, Cassis, Bellet and Pallette.

  • Yeah but they're not like Napa. Wine tourism isn't a billion dollar industry in most of France, and especially in the south. My recommendation would be to find a nice place to stay and then look around from there, There's a lot of wine but much of it is made by smaller producers that may or may not have importers. Some of it is pretty bad, some ... Read More
