Provence’s lively seaport towns, chic Mediterranean beaches, endless sunshine and flower-washed hilltop towns are downright irresistible. But for those who cannot experience the region’s splendor themselves, sipping on one of the local rosés is the fastest and most satisfying method of armchair traveling we can think of! Every flavor evokes a snapshot of the region, from its sun-kissed fruit to its briny minerality. While celebrated all over the world over for its refreshing, zesty rosés, Provence also entices wine lovers with its perfumed and saline whites and its bold, inky Mourvèdre-based reds, a surprising many of which stand up well to long-term cellar aging, thanks to their thick skinned grapes and varied limestone soils. Look to the Côtes de Provence for easy-drinking, everyday wines and the more famous crus of Bandol and Cassis for cellar collectibles.
