The wine-growing region is located in the south-east corner of France and stretches along the Côte d'Azur from Marseille in the west to Nice in the east. It is bordered by the two major wine-growing regions of Languedoc in the west and Rhône in the north. Many sources consider the island of Corsica, 160 kilometres south-east of the coast, to be a common wine-growing area with Provence. In fact, there are many similarities. Together with the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Provence is often referred to as the Midi. Provence is one of the oldest wine-growing regions in France and Europe, as vines were planted and wine pressed here by the Greeks as early as the 6th century BC.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
