Writer and lifestyle expertFrançoise Parguel raises a glass to toast the internationally successful rosé wine and its home in the Provence region of France in this first book to detail its history, featuring beautiful photography by Camille Moirenc. Born in the oldest French wine region of Provence, rosé is known worldwide for its gorgeous spectrum of pale pink colors, its aromatic and fruity flavor, and its growing success as a go-to drink for traditional and trendy wine drinkers alike. Its story begins in the mid-1980s, when a group of passionate winemakers (and friends) reinvented the product and its standards into how we know it today.Adventures in Rosé Wines in Provence takes us on a trip through this unique international saga to finally share the whole story along the Rosé Road, from St. Tropez to St. Barts and beyond. In the pages of this glitzy lifestyle book, tastemakers at home will enjoy stories and portraits alongside stunning photographs of Provence’s magnificent shores and chateaus as well as the famous gastronomical scenes where rosé is celebrated and recognized—from the luxurious Hotel Eden Rock to historic Club 55. No other wine region has seen the same success in such a short time, with escalating wine tourism, art exhibitions, vineyards, and new arty labels and big-bottle formats. New and old appreciators of rosé will delight in this addition to their wine collection.
