ROSÉ RESEARCH CENTER
The leaders of Provence's wine industry joined together in 1999 to create the "Centre de Recherche et d'Expérimentation sur le vin Rosé" (The Rosé Wine Experimentation and Research Center) in Vidauban in the French department of the Var.
The center performs scientific research and experimentation on Rosé wines. The results are published for professionals so that they can gain a better understanding of the region's different "terroirs" and better master the techniques for making and conserving rosé wines.
THE CENTRE HAS THREE DIFFERENT SPECIALIZED CENTERS
• A winery where test batches of wines are produced
• A high-performance analysis laboratory
• A room for sensorial analysis
The center also organizes special events and conferences in the vineyards of Provence. These fun and informative get-togethers cover many different subjects (vine growing techniques, current and future vine types, mastering alcoholic fermentation, the aromas of Rosé wines, etc.).
