The Provence vineyard spans over three departments: Alpes-Maritimes, Var and Bouches-du-Rhône. It is 250 km long and 100 km wide, which represents more than 26 000 hectares. Climate is warm and sunny, with low precipitation. The northern part of the vineyard is more exposed to wind.
The grapevines growing in this sunlit region have been planted by the Phoceans in the 7th century BC. There are four main appellations: Côtes de Provence (half of the production), Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Côteaux Varois en Provence and Coteaux de Pierrevert. Most of Provence wines are rosés (89%), with an annual production of 175 million bottles.
