“The first vineyard in France remains in Provence”.

 

When we enjoy a wine from Provence, it’s not only the wine, but also the history that we taste. 2,600 years ago, when the Phoenicians founded Marseille, they had a fabulous plant: the grape. Since then, the art of cultivation and traditional winemaking formed their path. From then on, Provence had its fist vineyard in France, and no doubt, the pink wine became one of the oldest and most well known wines in history.

It was the Greeks, who had harvested in Provence the first vineyards and wine culture. The wines produced at that time had light colours that resembled the colour of roses. Recent studies show that depending on the varietals and practices of winemaking, wine consumption is beneficial to the health.

 

This workshop will discuss:

History of wine in Provence since the Roman era

The rosé, an art of living in Provence

The wine and health
