Beaumes-de-Venise Wine Region Guide

Discover the Hidden Gems of Beaumes-de-Venise: Beyond Reds to Rare Finds


Last updated: June 24, 2024


First-time visitors to the southern Rhône anticipate a plethora of concentrated reds: unctuous wines baked under the Provençal sun and picked at optimum ripeness. In some instances, that is precisely what the region delivers.

Yet, one can discover a world of variety here, with producers making excellent white, rosé, and even dessert styles. Beaumes-de-Venise, a hitherto unknown part of the viticultural landscape, is one such region that wears its chameleon colors with pride. Indeed, Beaumes-de-Venise was marketing delicious, sweet wines long before dry reds became the height of fashion.

However, consumers rejected this venerable style en masse in the 20th century, so the appellation had to evolve. It has redefined itself as a source of exceptional reds that boast all of the perfume and potency of its far larger neighbor. Make no mistake: this is a region in the ascendant. It merits a closer inspection.
