Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Wine Region Guide

Where Wine and Culture Unite in Elegance


Last updated: February 28, 2024


The landscape of Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence has been enchanting tourists for centuries. Its chic capital, Aix-en-Provence, offers a surfeit of hedonistic and cultural attractions. But most importantly of all, this elegant destination serves as the perfect springboard for exploring the sizable Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence appellation. It is Provence’s second biggest wine zone, situated in the wider region’s western section. As elsewhere, winegrowers make a great deal of light and aromatic rosé here, although Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence is far from being a one-trick pony.

On the contrary, the region has a burgeoning self-confidence that is infectious, driven by greater levels of investment and winemaker innovation. Indeed, Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence actively encourages experimentation with different varieties/blends and vinification techniques; in contrast, conservatism and tradition tend to dominate in regions like Burgundy and Champagne, for example, where regulations tightly control the grape varieties used in blends. Yet, in Provence, self-expression is considered sacrosanct. Welcome to France’s most avant-garde vineyard.
