By country :: France :: Provence
Provence's reputation as a wine-producing region has been gathering speed recently, and while its principal ambassador is undoubtedly rosé, there are now a good deal of impressive reds around too. It is the sunniest and driest region in France, and because of this the region does not suffer from many of the fungal diseases that affect other areas. This makes it very well suited to organic viticulture, a methodology and philosophy we always endeavour to champion. Varieties that flourish here include Grenache, Cinsaut, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tibouren and Rolle.
