For the best quality/values in wine, turn to family-owned cooperatives. At Saint Roch Les Vignes, 200 growers combine their land and experience dating back to ancient Greek settlers in a state-of-the-art winery, to showcase classic flavors of Provence: delicate and dry at entry, expanding on the palate to full strawberry and spice, finishing with bright acidity and satisfying mouthfeel. Serve with the flavory dishes of France's south including pissaladière -- thin, crusty dough topped with onions, garlic, olives and anchovies.
