Domaine de la Begude is an estate of 500 hectares, with 22 hectares of vines, like a balcony over the sea, at the top of the appellation Bandol, brushed by the wind named Mistral. La Begude produces red, rosé and white wines belonging to the Bandol AOC, one of the first appellation in France.
The vines are situated 400 meters above sea level. From this elevation, the view extends to Ciotat bay and the sea beyond. The sea’s air continuously soften, and the wind allow us to have wines with no excess of alcohol, nor hthe climate of this terroir, which is often extreme. The soil's poverty eaviness.
The particularity of la Bégude is its extraordinary diversity of soils and expositions. This mosaic of vines remind us of a color pallet for an artist. It’s surrounded by olive trees and the Mediterranean forest caring heavy scents of garrigue. They serve as a setting, if not a jewel case.
