The majestic soil of the vineyards in Provence

The Mediterranean climate is favourable to the cultivation of vines. Indeed, this plant needs a sunny situation to produce its fruits. The violent and dry winds embody the uniqueness of the Provençal climate. They have a favourable influence on the development of the vine and shape the landscape of the vineyards in Provence. Indeed, the mistral, one of the most present winds in the region, rubs the soil to clean the vineyard. The Provençal winds thus ensure that the vines are protected from attacks by diseases associated with humidity.

Of course, the quality of the Provençal soil allows the production of excellent wines. However, the know-how of its craftsmen provides the aromatic complexity of this drink. A gastronomic wine is the result of a great mastery of oenology and a passion for winemaking.

The Provençal terroir abounds in treasures such as olive oil, truffles and honey. However, wine remains its most precious treasure. Indeed, the region is full of excellent estates, stunning vineyard landscapes and great wines that make the vineyards of Provence famous throughout the world.
