Located in the Côtes de Provence AOC’s region in the heart of Green Provence, Correns benefits from an exceptional micro-climate and clay-limestone soil. The village is on the banks of the Argens River. Correns bills itself as “Le premier village Bio de France.” Biologique is the French Term for Organic, so it means “France’s first organic village” where all food and grapes produced are organic. Its main produce is wine.
Since 1996, all farmers in the village have chosen organic agriculture. This collective decision was an answer to a growing concern about the need to respect nature and the unspoilt environment of Correns and to provide a sustainable village for future generations.
