Provence

Located in southeast France, the Côtes de Provence appellation was awarded in 1977 and consists of three 3 departments (Var, Bouches-du-Rhône and Alpes-Maritimes) and 84 communities extending from the coastline of Lower Provence to the inland mountain ranges. The entire appellation is located in a Provençal Mediterranean climate characterized by long, hot and dry summer seasons, mild winters and rainy autumns. Provence wines are still, dry wines (less than 4 g/l of glucose and fructose), with blends of several varietals for the rosés and reds, and single varietals or blends for the whites.
