Know-how handed down from generation to generation

For two centuries now, the vineyard has been under the loving protection of one family…

Over the years, they have been able to preserve all the local and typical characteristics of this wine.
The conditions for qualifying for the AOC Bandol (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée), are here not only complied with, but in fact, even surpassed.
Yield is deliberately kept low : 37 hl per hectare, enabling the wine to fully blossom and keep all its fragrance, body and flavour.

Domaine de l'Olivette

At the same time, the family has not neglected the technical aspect, keeping up-to-date with technology, and aiming at new heights in expressing all the characteristics of this exceptional soil.

Temperature-controlled facilities complement the work of the oak barrels : computerisation of production data works alongside human know-how and skills, all under the watchful eye of the estate’s oenological laboratory.

Vintage after vintage, generation after generation, the character of the ” Domaine de l’Olivette ” wines bursts into blossom.
