For wine lovers, Provence is one of the best-known regions of the world for its exquisite rosé wines. With a temperate climate all year round, this French region has seen vines grown for 2.600 years. The first ones that made of Provence the birthplace of great wines were the Greeks, who planted the first vineyard in Provence and introduced the art of wine in the region.
To this day, rosé wines from Provence are among the most appreciated throughout the world for their strong character and delicacy; an exquisite combination.
