 Our Wines by Region - Cassis

Nestled into the coast, tucked behind the Provençal hills famously painted by Cézanne and Van Gogh, is the seaside town of Cassis. As if this quintessential French seaboard town could be any more brilliant, it is also a wine appellation, producing mostly fine rosé and white wines perfectly fitted for sipping while your toes are in the sand and a coastal breeze is blowing through your hair, watching vibrant sails bobbing on the horizon.

One of the first vineyards to be re-established in Cassis after the phylloxera epidemic, the Château de Fontblanche was founded in the early 20th century by Emile Bodin. Bodin was a close friend of Frédéric Mistral, who dedicated a flowery poem to the wines of Cassis ("Even the bee's honey is not sweeter").  Cassis was the first Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée in France,  declared on 15 May 1936.
