Domaine Tempier

"Easily the most widely recognized estate in Bandol" - Jeb Dunnuck, erobertparker.com

"Owned by the Tempier family since 1834, the Domaine won its first gold medal in 1885 due to the drive and hard work of Lucie’s great-grandmother, Léonie, who had the first winery built. Located in the heart of the Bandol appellation, Domaine Tempier’s 38 hectares are spread over several parcels facing the sea on steep, sun-drenched slopes...

Domaine Tempier is made up of a patchwork of vineyards, the main ones being La Migoua in Le Beausset-Vieux and La Tourtine and Cabassaou in Le Castellet, as well as the house in Le Plan du Castellet. The house is the soul both of the Domaine, whose tall cypress trees sway above the surrounding vineyards like the masts of a ship, and of the Peyraud family itself. Lucien Peyraud, the ‘high priest of Mourvedre’ ran Domaine Tempier from 1941 to 1982. He was succeeded by his two sons, François and Jean-Marie, followed by Daniel Ravier, who manages the estate today...

At Domaine Tempier, we practise the most natural wine-growing methods possible. The land is worked using a combination of traditional, mechanical and manual methods without herbicides. Our rational soil management techniques are based on sustainable development principles which avoid the use of pesticides. We firmly believe that nature must find its own biological balance." - Domaine Tempier
