The wine-growing region is in the southeast corner France and stretches along the Côte d'Azur from Marseille in the west to Nice in the east. It is used by the two major winegrowing regions Languedoc in the west and Rhone limited in the north. In many sources, the island lying 160 kilometers southeast of the coast Corsica considered with Provence as a common wine-growing area. In fact, there are many similarities. Together with the area Languedoc-Roussillon Provence is often called Midi designated.
Provence is one of the oldest wine regions France and also Europe, because it was already here in the 6th century BC. The Greeks planted vines and pressed wine. Maybe they did this before them Celts (Gaul). The name comes from the Romans, 154 BC. BC founded the “Provincia Romana” and delivered wine to Rome from here. Deserved legionaries received a small estate as a reward, which they used for viticulture. The area was always hotly contested throughout history and belonged successively to the Roman Empire, the Franconian Empire, the Kingdom of Burgundy, the Spanish county of Barcelona-Arágon, the Anjou House, the Kingdom of Sardinia and finally France.
