The village of Chateauneuf du Pape is blanketed with picturesque vineyards and form the backdrop for many of our walking and holidays in Provence. And for good reason: wineries in Chateauneuf du Pape are everywhere!
The wine trails of Provence benefits from the ever-present Provençal sun, the Mistral wind, the grape varieties in the region producing strong reds and refreshing rosés.
The "Côte du Rhône" reds are powerful and spicy, including the celebrated wine-making village of Chateauneuf du Pape. Gigondas, just a stone’s throw away, produces a well-known red and is a playground for walking paths perched high above the Rhône Valley.
The muscat-laced trails near the town of Beaumes-de-Venise is also very famous for its sweet, dessert white wine.
Peter Mayle’s Luberon boasts reputable rosés, around such villages as Ménerbes, Bonnieux and Lacoste, also settings for fabulous walking and cycling.
Continuing farther South are the Alpilles mountains and the region of Aix-en-Provence, both up-and-coming wine making areas.
Heading towards the coastline, we get into rosé territory. The vineyards snuggle right up to the Riviera, some of them even on the islands just off the mainland. The rosés here are light and crisp, served refreshingly cold as you picnic under the shade of a parasol pine!
