Villa Maison Tours work with some amazing and professional partners. “Wine Uncovered” is one of those partners. By using specialist partners, we can offer a truly amazing experience, immersing ourselves into the world of Wine in Provence.
Olivier is an expat Englishman who lives in the region and conducts tours in English or French. Olivier has recently launched a series of Videos about the different aspects of managing the vineyard and the production of wine.
The first in the Video series is on the all important topic of “Terroir”
You can only truly appreciate the soul of a great French wine by visiting the vineyard in which it has its origins. It is amidst beautiful Provençal vineyards that Olivier explains how the quality and characteristics and of the wines that you taste are derived from the unique “terroir” of each vineyard and the loving attention and toil of the vine-grower.
When talking about French wine it is impossible to ignore the notion of “terroir”, a concept that is shrouded in mystery and is responsible for much of the mystique surrounding French wine. Yet it is the influence of vineyard terroir that marks the enormous cultural difference between wines made in France and wines produced in the rest of the world.
So, what exactly is “terroir” and how does it influence wine? Wine Uncovered gets to grips with this elusive concept and demonstrates, in a fun and accessible way, how different terroir, grape varieties, vine-growing and winemaking methods determine the wines that you taste.
Enjoy this unique Video and other aspects of Wine in Provence, or better still, join one of our Villa Maison Tours for the chance to visit this region and discover the secrets for yourself.
