Now you can!! Wine in Provence has launched a new site Wine in France where you can buy the wine direct from us. We leverage our relationship with local wineries to bring your the best wine at a great price. Unlike most other wine tasters and wine sellers who visit and spend a few days tasting, we are tasting everyday!! Our intimate knowledge of the wine and the winemaker will bring you closer to what a good wine should be. A good wine of course should taste good and pleasing to YOU!! We all have different tastes, different amounts of certain taste buds, past experiences, etc….”The best wine in the world is the wine you love” Claude – Cave du Verger du Pape.
A good wine should also be the “right price”. In French the saying is ‘le prix sont correct’ which literally translates to ‘the price is right’. The wine should be priced accordingly to what it brings to the table (or couch). Buying wine direct from us eliminates the wine market’s “three tier system”. We will try to find the best value for the money while offering limited, hard to find wine library vintages from major wine producers.
Perhaps the most important factor of a ‘good’ wine is where and who it comes from. If you have taken a wine tour with Wine in Provence before, you already met some of the winemakers. Heard their stories, their struggles, drank their wine. That is the connection we hope to forge, the connection between winemaker and wine drinker. Something that seems to have been lost along the way with the over-commercialization of the wine industry. As some of our prior guests may know, these wineries do not have a marketing teams, consulting firms, or even dedicated tasters. They do one thing and that is make wine!!
Widely considered the most beautiful corner of France, Provence stretches all the way from Arles and Avignon to the Italian border, anchored by the Mediterranean Sea. The region’s natural beauty, abundant sunshine, warm climate, local wines, pretty beaches, farm-to-table dining, 873 picturesque villages topped with ruins, market towns and medieval walled cities all go into the mix that makes Provence irresistible to both the French and to visitors from outside her borders. Fields of lavender, rolling mountains of greenery and a sparkling Mediterranean backdrop-this is Provence, France. Aside from its postcard worthy scenery, Provence is a desired destination for wine lovers, most recognized for its rosé and white wines.
If you want to sample some of France’s finest wines amongst the beauty of the countryside, our private Provence wine tours are the perfect way to experience Provence in a fun, relaxed, intimate, English-speaking environment. Tour the wineries and taste the wines from wine regions in Provence and Côtes du Rhône including Aix-en-Provence, Cassis, Bandol, Les Baux de Provence and Saint Rémy and the world famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape. We are strategically located in Aix en Provence which allows us to service guests in cities such as Marseille and Avignon and others.

“Your guide will suggest the wineries, make the appointments, and—crucially—assume the role of designated driver for the day, so no one needs to make that sacrifice. A recommended company for tours in English is Wine in Provence, run by a transplanted New Yorker who married a Frenchwoman.” - May 18, 2016
“One company, Wine in Provence, stood out right away, probably because of the four TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence listed on the bottom of the company’s webpage. I was also reassured by the fact that they were featured in Rick Steves’ guidebooks.” “Unless you’re a native or an expert in Provence, the only way to get this experience is to hire a top rated tour company like Michael Ippolito’s Wine in Provence. It was absolutely a day to remember.” – January 11, 2016
