When we think of Provence, we can’t help but imagine ourselves on a terrace or by the pool, with a glass of rosé that quenches with its freshness and fruity aromas. But Provence is also about red wines that warm us up in winter thanks to their strong and robust character; or white wines that spoil us by their subtlety and finesse, while leaving room for a generous and well-structured material, filled with notes of spicy citrus.
It is this balance that we love in the wines of Provence, there’s a bottle of wine for every occasion! With grape varieties such as Syrah or Grenache, red wines are usually intense and spicy. Try out a garlic rabbit with a glass of Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence. As for white wines, a tuna tartare will enhance the aromatic power of a white Côtes de Provence. And for dessert, a rosé wine would be perfect with an apple crumble… whatever your choice, raise your glass and discover the delights of the bright colors of the Mediterranean!
This Mediterranean know-how of the Provencal vineyard existed for many centuries, before the arrival of the Greeks in 600 BC. But it was first the Greeks, followed by the Romans, who introduced these cultivation methods systematically in Provence.
