At the end of the 19th century, a family of migrants from Italy settles in the South of France, in Puget sur Argent, the Bologna family.
Laurent Bologna and his wife Anna decide to move to Cogolin, where together they create a distillery.
Having fallen in love with Ramatuelle, Laurent and Anna decide to take over the Domaine des Tournels, a farm where vines and fruit trees are already grown.
Laurent and Anna decide to hand over to their son Angelin Bologna and his wife Marie-Nicole. They expand the estate and plant new vines in the vineyard.
Angelin and Marie-Nicole decide to build a new cellar, still used today. Owing to the war, construction extends over 5 years.
There is a rapid expansion of tourism development on the Côte d’Azur (the film “And God Created Woman”, particularly shot in Saint-Tropez, being released in 1956!). Following this, Angelin and Marie-Nicole get the idea to open a campsite on several hectares of land amidst the vines.
To solely focus on vine growing and running the campsite, Angelin and Marie-Nicole decide to abandon growing fruit trees.
Laurent Bologna and his wife Joëlle take over the Domaine des Tournels. Their aim: to modernize vine growing, as well as the wine-making process.
The first grape harvesters arrive on the vineyard.
The Domaine des Tournels celebrates its 100th birthday! It is now the fourth generation’s turn to run the vineyard, with Nicolas Bologna and his wife Camille, and also his brother Vincent and sister Charlotte.
The vineyard has obtained the HVE label (high environmental value) which guarantees cultivation respecting the site’s biodiversity and the surrounding environment.
