Provence is located in the southeastern part of France, along the Mediterranean coastline from the Rhône River to the west to the Côte d’Azur to the east. Viticulture in the region dates back to at least 2,600 years ago. Ever since the Greeks planted the first vines, people transiting through the land have influenced the region’s vineyards. Today, the region is famed for its rosé wine. Rosé wine accounts for more than half of the regional production, while red wine accounts for a third. The remainder is white wine, almost exclusively in the region of Cassis. The two largest AOC are: Côtes de Provence followed by Coteaux d’Aix en Provence. For many, wines of Provence have flavours and aromas reminiscent of the garrigue landscape, wild lavender, rosemary and thyme. Rosé wine is usually dry with a refreshing acidity, while red and white are full bodied with intense spicy aromas.
