The word “Mediterranean” evokes a
way of life — long, leisurely meals under azure blue skies and brilliant sunshine,
overlooking the deep blue sea, with maybe
a touch of French Riviera glamour.
While the Mediterranean coast is long,
the territory covered by the Méditerranée Indication Géographique Protégée (IGP), or Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), includes coastal regions of southeast France, including Provence. Wines carrying this name come from vineyards that both overlap and fall in-between well-known winegrowing areas of the southeast, including the
Rhône Valley and Provence.
Méditerranée IGP is more than just a large region. The indication of origin gives a guarantee of place and quality, with flavors of ripe, sun-kissed fruit, sometimes a touch of garrigue herbs, a whisper of the salty sea breeze or a hint of Mistral-dried rocks.
Diversity and creativity are the hallmarks of this region, offering a style and flavor to suit every palate. A veritable treasure trove of tastes is ready to be discovered.
