Excellent Website from Provence - Have a Look

The "Vins de Provence" website is packed with really interesting facts and information about Rosé. You can click through to it here   

There are sections about "The Region" including the appellations, grape varieties and terroir and general information.  Under the "Winery Directory" you'll find a map showing locations of many of the producers and you can click through to find a lot more details about most of them, some great photographs and general information about the area.

Look under "Provence Rosé" for well written sections about the history of the wine, the wine itself and and the wine making process, (Maybe you shouldn't try to make the wine yourself though, as a couple of thousand years experience and the Provencal climate is a definite advantage to these lovely wines!).  You'll find recognition of many of the wines we sell at Rose-wine.com in the Awards section which lists the results from Concours General, Paris and makes impressive reading. We are lucky to have so many awarded wines in our range.

If it is a cool, not very good Summer's day here, then maybe the "Food and Lifestyle" pages may be too tempting, detailing as they do, the beautiful setting and enviable Mediterranean lifestye.  Just look under the "Food Pairings" section though for lots of good ideas including a video featuring former White House Chef Patrice Olivon pairing Pan Seared Cod & Provence Rosé.  Some sections of the site are more orientated towards the U.S. than the U.K., but you'll still find good ideas!

If you like this site you can find back issues of the Newsletter under the "News & Resources" header and can subscribe to the free English edition.  I really recommend this site to you and know that it just might tempt you to place an order with us! Best wishes, Bill
