Discover a World of Wine and Food Flavors in Marseille

Contributor blog post by Jill Barth:

The Southern French port city of Marseille has been the entry point for the world since the Greeks settled there around 600 BC. The second largest city in France is home to people of scoping nationalities and this diversity makes Marseille the world’s kitchen.

Marseille is also in an excellent wine neighborhood, with the best red, white and rosé wines that Provence has to offer growing in vineyards that share the same blazing sun, maritime breezes and Mistral gusts.

Jill Barth

Jill is a writer whose characters make wine, love wine, and live wine. Research for her forthcoming novel–the story of a Provençal winemaking family during the Second World War–has afforded her glorious pleasures: meetings with ambitious French vignerons, travel up and down France in bouncy Renaults, overnights in shuttered châteaux, and many hours as a student of wine with a glass to her lips. In this role, she not only enjoys her own relationship with wine but she also indulges in the life of the French winemaking family that inhabits the pages of her novel.

Jill writes about wine, travel and occasionally yoga (she’s a certified yoga instructor). Her fiction has been featured on NPR and has been published in several literary journals.

Her writings can also be found on her blog L’Occasion.

      LOL we agree (sort of) Marseille has a slightly edgy reputation, but the food, wine and culture is not far below the surface. Jill certainly has a way with wine words.
