Discover the wine appellations of Provence
The Provence vineyard spans over three departments: the Alpes-Maritimes, the Var and the Bouches-du-Rhône. It is 250 km long and 100 km wide, which represents more than 26,000 hectares of land in total. The region's Mediterranean climate is warm and sunny, with low precipitation. However, the northern part of the vineyard is more exposed to wind.
The grapevines growing in this sunlit region have been planted by the Phocaeans 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 around 175 million bottles.
