PROVENCE & ROSÉ WINE
Making rosé wines has been a specialty in Provence for generations, an integral part of the "art of living" the region is so well known for. Provence's climate, soils and grape varieties are all perfectly suited for rosé winemaking.
With an average of 152 million bottles of AOC Rosé produced each year, Provence is France's leading region, representing 40% of domestic production and 5.6% of worldwide production of rosé wines.
It is also the only production area specialized in this type of product, as rosé wines represent 87% of production in Provence (9% red and 4% white).
Thanks to the unique know-how of Provence's winemakers and their generations of experience with rosé wines, no region is more well-known for this type of product than Provence. More consumers spontaneously associate Provence with rosé wines than any other winegrowing region.
