An exceptional vineyard in Ramatuelle

The Domaine des Tournels

A family encounters the land

Since 1920, the wonderful story of the Domaine des Tournels vineyard and the Bologna family has been written in the Provençal sunshine in the village of Ramatuelle. Here our 55 hectares of vines enjoy a fabulous position, with the panorama of the sea and sky, at the foot of the Camarat lighthouse.

Average temperature

A perfect location

Our vines enjoy maximum sunshine owing to their directly south-facing aspect. The dry winds coming off the Mediterranean protect the vineyard from humidity-related disease attacks. There are so many geological and climate features which offer perfect conditions for the production of quality wines, typical of the Var terroir.


The vineyard’s seaward side

Our fields on the seaward side, being a total of 35 hectares, on sandy-clayey-schist land enjoy the rising sun as well as the influence of the sea, with a more regulated temperature, sea breezes and the maritime gateways which provide their morning dew.

The vineyard’s landward side

Our plots on the landward side, having a surface area of 20 hectares, sheltered from direct maritime influences on clayey-sandy-schist land, make the most of the winds on warmer land and also the setting sun.

The origin of this black grape with white juice is likely to have been Provence. You mainly find it in the Languedoc and the Rhône Vallley. This late grape variety, which needs sunshine, flourishes in our fields.

The Tibouren was originally from Asia Minor, and may have been introduced to our region by the Romans. Nowadays mainly cultivated in the Mediterranean basin, this grape with a “powerful” juice is being used in the development of our AOC Côtes de Provence and Coteau Varois in Provence.
