Introduction

There would be no argument if Cellar Tours had to single out one Provencal appellation that defies expectations. The beautiful and idyllic village of Cassis clusters around a delightful bay, with terracotta houses flanked by towering limestone-white cliffs over the Mediterranean Sea. Yet it remains a closely guarded secret, unlike the overcrowded destinations of St-Tropez and Cannes. In these garrigue-covered hills, winegrowers produce remarkable flavors: a signature herby scent of lavender merged with the most intriguing tropical fruit, notes of garrigue, sunflowers, and honeysuckle.

Moreover, unlike the majority of appellations in Provence, Cassis’ local economy does not rely on the export of sun-kissed rosé. The production of white wines is its chief preoccupation, in addition to a small amount of red and, yes, a smattering of rosé styles. But make no mistake: Cassis is not obsessed with pink. Its charms lie elsewhere.
