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.

    Snoothrank:

    For the price this is a really nice French rose. Subtle cranberry, strawberry and red cherry palate with nice acidity and a medium finish. Nothing complicated but a really good summer time deck wine with great QPR. Read More

  • Had some folks over last night to do a preview of our upcoming June trip to Southern France/Provence.  Greeted our guests with a little Limoux cremant and had the rose with a nice fig brie puff pastry. We then enjoyed a touch of roussanne with a spinach, bacon and avocado salad.  Dinner was a big hearty beef bourguignon that went very well with ... Read More
