Coteaux Varois Wine Region Guide

Where Wine Excellence Meets Mediterranean Beauty


Last updated: June 24, 2024


Provence has only recently joined the ranks of Europe’s premier wine zones. For many years, people depicted the region as a “one-trick pony,” a source of a seemingly inexhaustible supply of cheap and cheerful rosé. Critics often justifiably derided the red and white wines as ‘vin ordinaire,’ the produce of overcropped vines planted on poor, lazily cultivated terroirs. But today, evidence abounds of the quality of wine that can be coaxed from Provence’s numerous appellations.

Côteaux Varois en Provence has led the forefront of this quality revolution. In select sites within the more favorable sub-zones (generally on higher ground and more deficient soils), winemakers are increasingly producing excellent wines with real local character, a signature scent, and an age-worthy structure.

Like their neighbors in the Languedoc, winegrowers strive for excellence and international renown. The tourist trade will no longer suffice.
