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.

  • Must have made the leftovers makeovers.:-)My most recent wine was an Unsworth ... a beautifully etched Cote-du-Provence style bottle (with elements of a Champagne bottle as well).  The name of the wine is Charme de l'Ile. - an aptly named bubbly.  I have had it before, so no review this time round, except to say that the effervescence is good,...
