The Vins de Provence wine competition
Organized by the CIVP, this contest is restricted to rosé, red and white wines from the Côtes de Provence, Coteaux Varois en Provence and Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence AOCs. The different judges panels, made up of professionals (oenologists, sommeliers, technical experts and journalists) and amateur wine-tasters, will do blind tastings – to ensure complete reliability – of the 600 samples in competition. For each edition, about 100 Provence AOC wines of all three colours are recognized with gold, silver and bronze medals. The Provence Wines Contest is under the control of the Regional Directorate for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Repression and is registered on the list of national wine contests.
