The Vineyards of Bandol
Private Wine Tour
The Vineyards of Bandol
from your accommodation
Facing south, the Bandol vineyards look out over the sea. Set in a natural amphitheatre, the vines are planted in terraces covering some 1,500 hectares. These landscapes are the result of the perseverance of generations of winegrowers: over the centuries, they have had to sculpt the hillsides in order to be able to work the vines.
The expression of the terroir and the "Bandol know-how" are expressed in three colours: Red, Rosé and White. The wines produced bear the stamp of each winemaker and reflect their methods. The diversity of the geographical and geological situation and the exposure of each parcel give each wine a rich palette of nuances and characters.
This day will immerse you in the refined world of Bandol and its wines with their distinctive character.
+Total immersion in the appellation of Bandol – this home of Mourvèdre and a land of powerful wines.
+See three vineyards – each so different one from the other.
+Enjoy the stunning setting and photo opportunities in the landscapes of Provence.
