About Provence

The Provence wine region is best known for its elegant, mineral-tinged rosés from such appellations as Côtes de Provence and Bandol. Grenache is the main grape variety in the Côtes de Provence, with Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan in supporting roles. Bandol’s rosés are top-notch, but it also produces one of France’s great ageworthy wines, with powerful reds based on Mourvèdre.
