Heart-Achingly Beautiful Rosé
Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail
The Mirabeau story is one of following a dream and the pursuit of a deeply held passion for wine. In 2009, after 10 years of talking about it, we decided to swap our lives in South London for a new beginning as wine producers in the South of France. Armed with big ambitions to make a world-class rosé and willing to challenge established wisdom, we founded Mirabeau. Since then Mirabeau has collected some of the most prestigious industry awards and we are delighted that people enjoy our wines all over the world.
Provence is the most exciting place in the world to make rosé and Mirabeau specialises in this classy, lip-smackingly refreshing style of wine. We also make small quantities of white, red and sparkling pink for sale at the Mirabeau showroom in Cotignac.
Our Rosés have been crafted with a great deal of care from some of the finest, sun drenched vineyards in Provence and are a perfect aperitif as well as an accomplished gastronomic partner. People around the globe have fallen in love with Provence Rosé for its elegant, yet uncomplicated style and because it feels like the good life in a glass.
Wine is so much more than fermented grape juice, it has a special place at the centre of friendships, enriches precious family time and complements good food in a way nothing else can.
Mirabeau sets the bar very high in terms of style and quality, so you can enjoy a glass of our wine in the knowledge that you are drinking some of the best that Provence can offer. We have assembled a world-class international winemaking team and we never cease to look for improvements, no matter how small, from grape to glass.

We’re lucky to live in one of the most beautiful regions of the world, which is known for its fresh cuisine, fields of lavender, earthy truffles, artisan markets and its amazing coastline stretching from Marseille to the Italian border. And because we love this place so much we make films, blogs and recipes about wine, food and life in Provence which you can see right here.
If you’ve been to Provence you have surely driven past many of these houses. A Mas is a traditional farmhouse, largely self-sufficient with its own fruit, vegetables, grain, milk, meat and sometimes silkworms. It was constructed with inexpensive local materials; stones or wood from the area.
Not just any wine-tasting event, but something rather special for the village. I found myself shaking hands with the mayor, his wife and a number of rather influential people from the area and the evening was held in aid of fundraising for the school.
There are plenty of fun recipes combining figs with dried ham, goats cheese, as part of a fruit salad or maybe a simple pastry tart with Mascarpone and grilled figs. I fancied using them in a buttery pastry quiche to maximise their beautiful flavour, with a salty lardon and crunchy almond kick.
This is a lovely, yet simple recipe for a warm spring or summer’s day that combines beautiful flavours and looks pretty on any table. Perfect as a starter or as part of a relaxed lunch with salads and other summery dishes.
