The wines of Villa Riviera are truly exceptional due to their quality and refinement. They are the best expression of what a high-end rosé from Provence should taste like: Crisp, elegant and complex with a beautiful long finish.
They are extremely well made, clean and mouth watering.
The grapes come from the oldest vineyards of Provence and are still harvested by hand at night to preserve their freshness. They are rare and precious and have been pampered for centuries by talented wine-makers. At the time of the harvest, they are carefully selected and carried to the winery in small boxes to protect them. They will be then pressed right away, in the middle of the night, to avoid any maceration and guarantee a natural pale salmon color with golden notes.
These royal lands, paired with the unique know-how of the wine-maker and the ideal climate of the region, will produce some of the finest and most aromatic rosés wines in the world.
And this 2020, Villa Riviera France has joined Asia Import News – Asia Awards 2020 and won a Gold Medal and a Silver Medal in this competition:
Villa Riviera Grand Reserve – AOP COTES DE PROVENCE – 2018
Awarded Gold by Asia Import News
A rosé wine at its best! The color is pale, slightly salmon with beautiful clarity and luminosity. The nose is complex and structured; the palate is rich and gentle. Flavors and layers appear as you are enjoying the oldest expression of our unique terroir for a very long, aromatic finish. This is what French people call a Rosé Gourmand, a Rosé of Connoisseurs or simply a Gastronomic Rosé.
Recommend to pair it with refined fish and seafood such as Lobster, Oysters or Sea bass, Aged Cheese, Red Meats & Mediterranean Cuisine.
Villa Riviera Reserve – AOP COTES DE PROVENCE – 2018

This generous rosé will seduce you with its beautiful color and its aromatic nose that will remind you of a sunny afternoon in Provence. Delicately fruity with mouth-watering notes of green apple, white peach, mango and grapefruit. It will make you crave for more. The finale is fresh, crisp and elegant. This wine is perfect to be shared at the aperitif, for lunch or during a sunny afternoon.
Recommend to pair it with Shrimp, Thai & Mexican Food, Tapas, Arugula Salad, Bronzino, Charcuterie or Grilled Meats.
Interview of Mr. Mathieu Lévy
CEO – Villa Riviera France
Question 1: Do you already export to Asia ? If yes, where ? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for in Asia ?
Answer : We currently work with an importer in Hong-Kong and one in Singapore and are looking to expand our distribution in other Asian countries since Villa Riviera has been extremely well received by the Asian customers.
Our wines usually do great On & Off Premise:
– On Premise because of our appellation AOP Côtes de Provence, the quality of the wines and the brand notoriety;
– Off Premise because of our beautiful packaging and our highly ratings that stand out on the shelves.
We are looking for a mid size distributor with a dedicated sales force who is willing to focus on Villa Riviera to grow our businesses together. We always support our Importers and distributors in the world and work with them closely as partners.
Question 2: What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors ?
Answer : Our wines had never been exported before as they were exclusively reserved for the French Market. Our grapes come from the oldest vineyards in France that used to belong to the former kings of France. We focus on quality over quantity and do not use any pesticides or herbicides in our vineyards. We harvest by hand at night and carry the grapes to the winery in small boxes to protect them and preserve their freshness. They are carefully selected and pressed right away in the middle of the night to avoid any maceration and guarantee a natural pale salmon color. Only the first and second press will be used to create the unique blend of Villa Riviera.
Question 3: When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years ?
Answer : We started exporting worldwide in 2017, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and then Hong-Kong, Singapore, Brasil… Our wines have been extremely well received by the customers all around the World and keep seducing more and more everyday. They really enjoy the quality of the wines, their elegant packaging and our commitment to quality. Our Reserve is currently rated among top 1% of all wines in the World on Vivino and the Grand Reserve got 4.8 out of 5.
