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.

  • Chateau les Crostes Rose 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Binny's 8/2015. Interesting entry into the Rosé weekend because my daughter from Texas was in town and she loves this wine type. Most consumers at our house preferred the Portuguese Rosé' to this one. I, on the other hand, liked the subtle flavors in this one. Read More
