Savor a selection of Provence wines paired with locally produced cheeses in Aix-en-Provence, a medieval town that begs to be explored. You will begin with a walk along the leafy Cours Mirabeau, a wide boulevard framed by cafés, bookshops and elegant mansions with wrought-iron balconies. The beloved plane trees that shade the boulevard are about 200 years old. You will likely see landmarks such as the Mousse Fountain, which is fed by a natural thermal spring where the Romans bathed. In time, you will stop at La Fromagerie du Passage, a shop that sells extraordinary cheeses and wines. During the tasting that follows, you will sample a selection of wines paired with a charcuterie of local meats and cheeses produced through traditional methods. Chances are, one of the wines will be a rosé, which is by far the dominant wine produced in Provence.


• Enjoy a wine tasting and charcuterie at a cheese shop in Aix-en-Provence.
• Learn about the wines produced in Provence, especially the most prevalent rosés.
• Meander along Cours Mirabeau, a leafy boulevard that runs through the heart of Aix-en-Provence.
