A best-selling rosé, year after year! Crisp, dry, and mineral-driven with that coveted light color and Provence pedigree, this is a food-pairing dream, and drinks well past the summer months. It even works with Thanksgiving turkey! Domaine la Colombe is everything we want in a rosé, but at a price that makes the angels sing.

Very much a Provençal rosé in its lightness, and approachability. It also has what most people consider the "Provence light salmon color". It is fruity but completely dry!

What can I say about a wine that is elegant, light, crisp, refreshingly mineral driven and will not require a budget? I think I said what needs to be said. I can drink big red wines even in Hot summer days of Los Angeles but when I tried this liquid feather like Rose' that had flavor, personality and elegance, I kind of questioned myself for not drinking this wine all the time! So do yourself a favor and get a taste of this mind blowing Rose'. Your welcome!!

This is a fruity style of rose that finishes dry, clean and crisp. The aromas of fresh mixed berries and sparkling mineral water fairly jump from the glass when poured. The mouth watering middle is filled with juicy watermelon and ripe red fruits that persist on the lingering, palate teasing finish. Delicious and refreshing.

Summer is on schedule to arrive once you see our shelves overflowing with beautiful rosés, with tints ranging from the palest, delicate flush of pink in Provence to the almost ruby hues of Tavel. The Coteaux Varois lies at some altitude and is home to Domaine de la Colombe, year in and year out one of our most popular everyday rosés, brimming with attractive, mouthwatering fruits- watermelon, red cherry, peach, and strawberry, with plenty of crisp acidity to keep you coming back. Ideal for parties, picnics, and barbecues, or as a wonderful aperitif all by itself. Lovely as a midsummer sunset.

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
