The emblematic wine of Provence: Le Rosé
Rosé wine, its origin
Although the rosé is modern and trendy, it has existed for 260 years. It was the Greeks who planted the first vines and introduced the wine culture. In the 18th century, the rosé was abandoned for red wine. Now days, the trend is for the Rosé, and its consumption has tripled in twenty years.
The union of Provence and rosé
In Provence, the production of rosé is a specialty, a real art of living. Each year is produced on average 141 million bottles of AOC rosés. This makes Provence the first region in France producing this wine, with 35% of the national production.
Rosé, a trendy product
Rosé represents 30% of the world’s wine consumption with 69 million consumers. It announces the arrival of the holidays and sunny days! With ice, or just out of the freezer, the Rosé is also a base for cocktail and blends perfectly with fresh and fruity ingredients.
Un vin qui se décline
Here are some suggestions from the team of “my villa in Provence”:
The frozé is a frosted cocktail based on rosé and strawberry. It is simple to achieve and is an indispensable part of your summers. Simply frost the rosé by putting it in the freezer several hours, then mixing the juice of a lime, a tray of strawberries, sugar, red fruit puree and lots of ice cubes. Mix and play: an acidic and ultra-refreshing granite for your summer appetizers!
