Domaine Roche Redonne, founded in 1989, is a family owned winery run by Henri and Geneviève Tournier. The property is located on the foothills of the Bandol appellation, along the Mediterranean Coast, in the town of La Cadière d'Azur. It is surrounded by olive trees and garrigue (wild herbs).
Geneviève and Henri Tournier
The 12-hectare vineyard is farmed under organic methods. Both Henri and Geneviève focus on the work in the vineyard in respect of the environment. The vines are 40 years old on average, with the youngest vines at 20 years and the oldest at 60 years. The yields are very low, and the steep hilled vineyards can only be harvested by hand.
Their son Guilhem Tournier created his own estate "Château Guilhem Tournier" in 2004 and is now fully certified organic and he uses biodynamic methods.
