The Bandol wine region, located near the coast east of Marselle and Cassis, is one of Provence's most internationally recognized wine regions. Built around the village of Bandol, west of Toulon, the Bandol AOC covers the production of 8 communes with silicon & limestone soils. Those soils and the warm, coastal climate are ideally suited for the late ripening Mourvedre grape which is the major variety of the region. For both the red and rosé wines, Mourvèdre must account for at least 50% of the blend, though most producers will use significantly more, with Grenache and Cinsault usually filling out the rest of the wine's composition.

La Bastide blanche family estate was established in1972 and is on its third generation in the town of Le Castellet. The soil is predominantly limestone. All the wines are certified organic since 2012. All grapes are harvested by hand as it is the only way to finely sort the bunches during the harvest and to protect the berries until they arrive in the cellar. The average age of the vines is 28 years old.
