Despite living in the South-East of France, I'm not as near to Provence's vines as you might think. The vineyards nearest to me are in Nice's Bellet AOP, as well as across the Var in St Jeannet.

I've been working here since 1986, when rustic reds were the principal export - a far cry from today's rosés!

I'm currently writing an article on 2020's rosés for Decanter, as well as tasting over 200 wines for the Provence entry of my annual Rosé Report.
