Provence wine routes - Lavender circuits

Discover the Wine Routes near Villa la Licorne



Visit, discover, taste and savor
Imagine yourself under the radiant sun of the south of France....... facing the Mediterranean Sea or at the foot of the vines, a glass of rosé, white or red in your hand!

The discovery of numerous amphoras attests to a very ancient vine culture in Provence, 2600 years ago, when the Phocaeans founded Marseille.
They introduce for the first time: the vine.

Historically, Provence is therefore the very first vineyard in France.
The climate is favorable with favorable sunshine, dry winds like the Mistral, poor soils that drain rainwater well, while being rich in minerals that give character to each of the terroirs of Provence.
Traditionally dominated by rosé, wine production is tending to diversify.

Winegrowers stand out and offer high quality red and white wines for tasting.
