Provence, a most ancient vineyard of France
The history of Provencal vine began in the 6th century when sailors from Phocée arrived on the Marseille coast with vine stock in their ships.
Romans, then monks, and eventually Provencal earls made the vineyard prosper. Meanwhile, it was only during the 15th century that King René, the vine lover, gave Provencal wine it’s due credit.
Acquiring a great quality, it did not stop improving over the years until the 19th century.
The relentless work of all these winemakers built the base of a modern wine producing Provence.
