Provence is one of the oldest wine regions in France. About six hundred years before Christ, Greek settlers established the first vineyards there. The Romans then expanded viticulture and gave the area the name Provincia Romana, later shortened to Provence. The region in the southwest has the driest, sunniest and warmest climate in France and is therefore ideal for wine growing. The region is known for its immensely popular pale pink Rosé. Beautiful red and white wines also come from Provence. However, 88% of the wines produced are rosé. The main grape varieties are therefore Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault.
Le Connaisseur sells a wide range of Provence wines from the famous Provence region as AIX, Château Miraval, Château de Salettes, Château Sainte Roseline and Château Thuerry.
