Provence Wines"There are few countries that could be decent rivals to France when it comes to wines. It seems that French winemakers simply can’t go wrong when magically turning grapes into a spellbinding drink that makes all of us sigh in a state of total bliss. Provence is located in southeastern France and represents a meeting point for many cultures and people that each introduced at least one grape variety to the region. This is why today Provence is home to a large number of varieties and, therefore, a spectacular palette of most delicious wines, among which the most popular is probably rosé.
Every subregion and appellation have their own hallmark that makes them unique and recognized, although Mourvedre is the most commonly cultivated across the whole Provence. Many of them also plant Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah varieties, often used in blends with other, lesser-known grapes, such as Braquet. These varieties are usually cultivated by more traditional winemakers who want to keep the typical French notes instead of following the trends. As for the lovely, full-bodied white wines typical for Provence, they’re mostly made of Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc and others. Wines like Miraval Cotes de Provence Rose and d’Esclans Cotes de Provence Whispering Angel Rose are perfect souvenirs to take home after a trip to this French wine region. "
