Who could say no to a Provence rosé with a funky, fancy bottle (curvy with white striping) and easy-on-the-wallet pricing at $16? That’s all from an estate that also houses a Relais & Châteaux inn, the Michelin-starred restaurant Le Jardin de Benjamin, and a cooking school, 25 miles from the Mediterranean yet at a bit of altitude too, around 1,000 feet.

This blend of 50 percent grenache noir, 25 percent cinsault, and 25 percent syrah is a warm-weather delight, the palest of pink, acid-forward, and slightly perfumed with flowers, which follows with a fulfilling flavor profile of wild strawberries and melon. It pairs very well with a tomato, basil, and burrata salad, or your porch as the warm sun sets.
