2,600 years of history in Provence

The grape wine was introduced in France in the year 600 B.C. by the Phoenicians. At the time, the Romans divided the south of France regions into large estates and, being experienced producers, introduced new grape varieties and improved the viniculture methods. The wines of Provence are well known abroad during the Middle Ages, and were among the favourite wines of the French kings. In 1977, they were awarded the “Appellation d’Origine Controlée” classification. The “Côtes de Provence” wines have the innate sophistication of all the best wines: they are subtle enough to accompany the most delicate dishes such as truffle or lobster, yet they are also robust enough to underline the wide range of the
Provencal cuisine flavours.
