THE VINEYARDS AND WINE OF CASSIS
A little fishing port situated 30 km to the east of Marseilles, Cassis knows how to preserve its Provencal authenticity and charm. Of course, this seaside little town is famous for its superb bays or “Calanques”, Cassis is also well known for its picturesque port and the imposing Cap Canaille, the highest maritime cliff in Europe, not forgetting its castle, nor the casino. But Cassis has another trump card: its vineyards, vineyards with a guarantee of quality or ‘Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée’. Vineyards spreading out between the sea and the hills producing a white wine of exceptional quality. Presumably one of the best white wine in the world!!!
We have chosen to visit the smallest of the Cassis estates: "Le Clos Val Bruyère". "The soil of Cassis is unique throughout the Mediterranean which allows the vintage dry white wines to be produced with a balance between freshness, subtlety and structure. "We will join Mr. and Mme. Simonini. They run their estate with real dedication and enthusiasm. They are going to divulge all their secrets... Or almost all. This is a very nice documentary about the wine with beautiful colors of Provence.
