According to Vins de Provence, the first wines were actually rosés. Twenty-six centuries ago the Greeks founded a colony in Marseille and the first vines were introduced to Provence. The wines made there were similar in color to rosés due to the fact that maceration (softening or breaking down of skins to add color and flavor) was either not yet known or barely practiced in the ancient grape world.
