A little history …
How the vine she was introduced in Provence?
That’s an interesting question … It is with the Romans as vines took root in Provence (Provencia Romana).
The second century BC, they established themselves in the area and began the cultivation of the vine.
Then, the fifth in the twelfth century, it was the monks who make wine and markets in order to maintain the monastic institutions.
Finally, from the fourteenth century, it was the Nobles who will manage a large number of vineyards in Provence.

A suitable climate …
The climate is capricious in Provence: we know, for example, the violent, cold wind that is the Mistral. Let’s drop the preconceived ideas because the Mistral is very good for the development of the vine, it just prevents it from developing diseases caused by moisture!
The sun, sometimes harsh, is also a friend of the vine subject to a suitable watering.
