It’s Rosé time: with an awesome wine tasting party!

Wine Tasting Party

Did you know Provence is the actual first wine region in France? 

When you think of France, you may think of
Paris right away, but the elegant and relaxed joie de vivre of the South of France
in Provence is just as good and stunning as the city of lights (and one of the most colourful regions that I can’t wait to visit already!). 

              When the taste of style only means rosé heaven from Wines of Provence, I HAD to plan an awesome wine party                                                                          with my friends, the best view and appetizers.

I’ve been kind of curious to learn all about the provencal lifestyle, the silvery green olive trees, the culinary traditions that set them apart, the enchanting lavender fields and all the vines that create the most delicate rosé wines you’ll be able to enjoy in Quebec, like we did.

Learning about this region immediately transported me to my oenotourism experience when I visited Mendoza, Argentina, proving that wine isn’t just something we enjoy socially but without a doubt it is a way of life.

In this post, I’ll show you some simple but delicious ideas how you can pair three different rosé wines, from the three appellations of Wines of Provence:

Côtes de Provence

Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence

Coteaux Varois en Provence
