Winemaking for more than 2000 years
More than 2600 years ago, the first fields in Provence were cultivated in order to grow wine. Around year 600 B.C., the Greek immigrants founded the city, which today is known as Marseille. Winegrowing travelled with the Greeks and so did the wines, which slowly were spread all over Provence.
Today wine production has become far more industrialised. Most of the grapes are being harvested in August by machines. Only our old Ugni blanc from 1930 and our Cinsault from 1942 are being harvested by hand.
