Coteaux Varois covers a large part of the département in Provence called the Var. It is centered on the unprepossessing town of Brignoles. There is a wide variety of wine produced under this appellation ranging from poor to excellent in quality. Some of the wines represent excellent value for money.
Red wines are a blend of at least two of the grapes Grenache, Cinsaut, Mourvèdre and Syrah which must comprise at least 80% of the blend. The remainder can be made up using Carignan, Tibouren and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The white wines are blended from Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Rolle (which must comprise at least 30% of the blend), Sémillon Blanc (which must not exceed 30% of the blend) and Ugni Blanc (must not exceed 25%).
