It is one of the oldest vineyards in existence, its multi-cultural heritage dates back to the Greco-Roman era, at the height of maritime trade in the Mediterranean.

Provence produces the best rosés in the world on 8 AOCs, in 3 sub-regions: Bouches-du-Rhône, Haute-Provence and Var.

Here are 5 appellations from the Provence region that we recommend: Bandol, Baux-de-Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Palette and Bellet.

Here are 2 appellations from the Corsica region that we recommend: Patrimonio in the North, Figari in the South.
