La Belle Vie en Provence

Posted: 14/06/2012 00:00

Summering in the South of France has long been a society favourite, but we like to sidestep the glitz and glamour of Monaco and Cannes and get lost in the rich history, scenery and tranquillity of the Provence countryside.

The rolling fields provide endless inspiration for creativity. And here at Black Tomato, just the thought of Provence conjures images of spending the day exploring the cobbled streets and boutiques of a busy town and the evening sipping crisp wine on a secluded vineyard.

The vines of Provence produce some of the world’s most renowned wines. Visiting these wineries is not only a feast for the eyes but for the pallet too. Chateau Vignelaure is described as “one of the showpiece properties not only of Provence, but of France,” and the rows and rows of vines provide breathtaking scenery. The region is known most recently for its rose wines, which are dry and aromatic, but also for its full bodied reds and whites with hints of spice and earthy fragrances.
