Rosé Wines from Provence
For all SEASONS For all OCCASIONS
Summer is synonymous with rosé – and rosé is practically synonymous with Provence. In fact, this spectacular Mediterranean region dedicates 88% of its wine production to this category, in a fresh, sharp and refreshing style. Today, r osé from Provence is more than just patio wine. Year-round, on the beach or with a gourmet meal, it’s the ideal companion for any occasion.
THE PERFECT APERITIF
Summertime means impromptu evenings with friends on the balcony, in the backyard or in the park. When the cork pops and the rosé starts flowing, that’s your cue for fun in the sun. Don’t hesitate to pair it with a variety of substantial starters, including deli meats, olives, smoked fish, fried or stuffed summer squash, saltines, bruschetta, or bite-size tuna-and-tomato tapas. With their bold accents of red berries, peaches, exotic fruits and citrus, rosés from Provence go well with just about any food flavour.
BY THE SEA
The salty Mediterranean breezes wash over the vines of Provence to give their wines a joyful, sun-drenched quality that makes them a perfect match with sea urchins and grilled fish. And for a more exotic flair, why not try them with sushi, or spicy Thai seafood?
SUNSHINE IN A BOTTLE
So what to do with your rosés when summer turns to fall? Pop them open with the same enthusiasm to keep the sun shining by the fireplace. They’ll be just as tasty with your tomato-based spaghetti in November than with your Niçoise salad in August. Comfort food never tasted so good!
