Domaine du Bourrian is one of the oldest wine estates in the commune of Gassin on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez. As for the foundation of the Domaine, it dates back to 1871.
After the change of owners in 2014, the estate was completely rebuilt. This colossal restructuring took 4 years and was conducted with respect to the historical past. The most beautiful historic part, the room of large oak barrels, has been preserved and is now open to the public. It was a very conscious decision to preserve the spirit of the estate, whilst making it a technically modern production facility, yet at the same time attractive for living and for visiting tourists. Our collection of aircraft and tractors is exhibited on our property at the beginning of the tourist season.
The Domaine is available for private rental.
We can observe the vineyard in one piece with an area of 23,5ha.
From 2014, the new owners have chosen to produce organic wines, the quality of which is now highly appreciated. After three years of conversion to organic farming, all the vines have been certified organic, to preserve nature and the health of employees and consumers.
Our state-of-the-art equipment allows vinification of the grapes in the purest respect of the traditions and rules of organic farming. Behind a gigantic bay window, you can observe a battery of the latest generation stainless steel tanks, with a capacity of more than 2000 Hl. This ultra-modern semi-buried cellar, which contrasts with the historic barrel room, is necessary to establish wines of great precision. Indeed, the perfect management of temperatures and the quality of the containers bring real added value to our organic wines.
Each year, the cellar will produce up to 150,000 bottles which will be stored and aged in optimal conditions (stainless steel vats, barrels). The wines can be tasted both in the reception room and on the terrace in the shade of century-old plane trees.
