Provence is the oldest French wine region and Rosé is the oldest known wine. The region has a rich rosé tradition (over 2600 years long), and winemakers today are the beneficiaries of the region’s collective knowledge and time-honored techniques.
Since rosé is a delicate wine and one of the most difficult to produce with success, these long-established traditions remain entirely relevant. The area’s deep-rooted rosé culture goes a long way toward explaining why the world’s best rosés still come from Provence.
A Rosé wine can be made from red or white grape varietals, but most commonly red. Traditionally, the skins of a red grape are allowed brief contact (2-20 hours) with the grape juice but not enough to impart the colour or tannins that would qualify it as a red wine. Rosés from Provence are fresh, delicious and affordable for consumers.
