South of France

tempier-bottles.jpg

Mediterranean coastline, medieval hilltop villages, romance, wine... these are the associations we make with the south of France. Stretching from the Pyrenees in the west to the Alps and the French Riviera in the east, the southern tier of France produces a huge amount of wine in a wide range of styles. From the famed rosés of Provence to the full-throttle reds of Languedoc to the innumerable Mediterranean white varietals, there is something for everyone. Not to mention that prices for southern French wines tend to be much lower than those from its regional neighbours to the north.
