Provence is a wine–growing region in the remote southeastern part of France, best known for its quality rose wines and warm, mild climate. Winds characteristic of the southern climate of France (eg mistral wind blowing from the Rhone Valley) are an important factor here; they reduce the spread of vine diseases and molds in vineyards, but unfortunately increase the risk of damage to the grapes and even the vines themselves. In addition, the ideal summer conditions are somewhat offset by the storms that occur in spring and autumn.
