Under the sun of the South, the Provencal vineyards extennds between the Mediterranean and the Alps, in breathtaking landscapes.

The sea, the calanques (creeks), the sun, the sumptuous villas make you dream, embellished with the Art of living distilled by the Provencal vineyards that the Wines of Provence now offers you to discover in augmented reality.
Palette of magnificent terroirs and landscapes
Beyond this heavenly picture, an immense palette of terroirs nestles on this gastronomic geography that separates the Alpilles from Nice. Provence gives birth to festive wines as well as gastronomic wines. Over 250 kilometres, from the stony soils of the Baux-de-Provence to the clay-limestone terroirs of the Côtes de Provence or the limestone scree of the micro-appellation Palette, the production extends to the restanques of Bandol and the multitude of colours of its soils, not forgetting the sedimentary rocks of Bellet, a small vineyard on the heights of Nice and, off the coast of Cannes, the islands of Lérins where the monks make their famous nectars. The vineyards produce wines from a wide variety of grape varieties: grenache, cinsault, carignan, mourvèdre, syrah, tibouren, cabernet-sauvignon, and even chardonnay.

Wine tourism in Provence
Provence is a region that fascinates French and foreigners alike, attracted by its landscapes and its timeless art of living. The Vins de Provence vineyard is a pioneer in the development of wine tourism in France, thanks to the dynamism of its winegrowers and winemakers. Three Wine Houses present the vineyards: Maison des vins des Côtes de Provence in Arcs-sur-Argens, Vinothèque de la Sainte-Victoire in Saint-Antonin-sur-Bayon and Maison des vins des Coteaux Varois en Provence in La Celle,
The Provence Wine Route brings together nearly 450 winegrowers on three territories labelled Vignobles & Découvertes (Le Pays d’Aix – Sud Lubéron, Provence Verte & Verdon Tourisme, Dracénie Provence Verdon).
Terroir and Art de Vivre
Wine tourism in Provence is also animated by remarkable individual initiatives with estates that offer a high standard hotel offer in the middle of the vineyards. The wine festivals that punctuate their calendar are an opportunity to live strong and authentic moments. It has at heart to make you discover them without concession. Guided wine tastings, strolls in the vineyards, visits of cellars and wine storehouses, farmhouse inn with table d’hôtes and organic products, art exhibitions, spa, yoga, cinema or concerts in the vineyards… There is something for everyone!
The Rosé, a child from Provence
The first vines were brought by the Greeks when Marseille was founded 26 centuries ago. The Rosé was the first wine made in antiquity on the sunny soils of Provence. A land of predilection for Rosé due to its climate, its terroirs, its grape varieties, Provence has always been favourable to the production of wines with this beautiful and tender colour. Through a selection of grape varieties, a strategy in cultivation methods, and major investments in the cellars, the winegrowers of the region have made Rosé the leader of their production. Exported worldwide, and increasingly tasted on the epicurean planet, Rosé goes well along with all cuisines, all cultures and all atmospheres. The emblematic production of Provence deserved its world day: the International Rosé Day Provence!
