Wines of Provence

Through our work with Wines of Provence, the market value increased from $3.4 million to $132 million and the number of Provence wineries exporting to the U.S. grew from 32 to over 200. Active trade contacts grew by quadrupled, and Wine Enthusiast nominated Provence “Wine Region of the Year” in 2011 and 2016.

Growth of the dry rosé category following the leadership of Provence is the most successful sustainable category growth in the last 20 years.
