The rosé wines of south-eastern France are perhaps amongst some of the most well-known and respected in the world – and boasting the ideal climate and vineyard locations, Provence could be said to specialise in rosé production. Try the Wine Tourism Route for suggestions on where to find the region’s best wines and vineyard visits – you can create your own personalised itinerary based on your preferences and how much time you have, and a network of locals will show you new ways to experience – and love – Provence. The official route has a network of over 300 estates and wine cellars representing eight different appellations, each with their own unique qualities and characteristics (Bandol, Cassis, Les Baux de Provence, Palette, Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence and Coteaux Varois en Provence). These stretch across three Provençal departments – Bouches-du-Rhône, Var and Vaucluse – and their enthusiastic professionals share a set of values acknowledged by signing a ‘quality charter’ to demonstrate commitment to the Provence Wine Route. Each of them proudly displays a ‘Route des Vins de Provence’ sign outside the participating cellar or vineyard. You can also discover ‘La Provence Verte’, a tourist destination encompassing 38 towns and villages gathered around the two major towns of Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume and Brignoles. The area’s economy is primarily based on agriculture and has built its strength by enhancing its major assets: the forests and unspoilt environment, the abundant water, and the vineyards that have shaped the landscape. Wine-making is part of the history and tradition of this area. Collectively making up the ‘Côteaux Varois en Provence’ and ‘Côtes de Provence’ appellations, some vineyards date back to the Roman era and the clay-limestone terroir produces high-quality wines of great diversity. Wine is a fundamental part of the art of living (‘art de vivre’) in Provence and winemakers in La Provence Verte welcome visitors to 14 wine estates for tastings and a crash course in viticulture.
