vdp Var

Vin de pays du var

The var departement is located inland in the centre of Provence and is surrounded by mountain ranges which give the area a unique climate.

Anna and I sauntered up to a little restaurant in the Parc du mercantour village of saorge after a nice walk along the GR52a.

We ordered a demi pichet of vin du pays du var rouge to go with the menu du jour Saorgien.

Dark deep red in colour with a very aromatic nose and a gamay like bubblegum fruityness.

Full bodied with a high amount of acid on the palate but suprisingly good red to drink in hot weather.

Available in Nicolas
