Finding good, undiscovered Provence these days is like finding a needle in a haystack. Especially when you’re stuck at home and can’t travel.

So I asked the local trade body, Vins de Provence, for tip-offs on great wineries not represented in Ireland. 70 wines turned up at my door for tasting a few weeks later.

And as soon as I tasted this wine, I knew I’d found The One.

The colour, the crispness, the intensity of flavour… I could just imagine this being crushed in gardens all over Ireland this summer.

This is the Domaine’s top rosé - a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsaut.

Domaine Saint Andrieu is located in a very remote and high part of Provence - and the vineyards here, nestled amongst olive tree and rolling hills, are farmed sustainably and responsibly to produce the best quality fruit.

They take their biodiversity seriously… they were recently certified ‘Bee Friendly’, reflecting the incredible wildlife in all of their vineyards.

Lots of people dismiss Provence as not real wine - Gregory’s a proud, local lad who wants to make real wine. When you taste this, you’ll see he’s absolutely nailed that.

Domaine Saint Andrieu was discovered in 2003 by Jean-Paul and Nancy Bignon, the owners of the famous Chateau Talbot. 

Jean-Paul was sitting on an Air France plane flicking through the in-flight magazine, when he came across an ad for an old 14th century farmhouse in Provence. He instantly fell in love with it, and decided to buy it as a holiday home. As you do.

Super rose, great balance of light and crisp. Didn't have with food this time but was a cracker on it's own. Have ordered more for next order, definitely recommend a try. 👌🏼
