LA BASTIDE SAINT DOMINIQUE
La Bastide Saint Dominique estate lies in the heart of Provence, right in the foothills of Châteauneuf du Pape, buffeted by the gusts of the Mistral wind and bathed by the bright southern sun.
Built around a former 16th century chapel, the estate was created by Marie-Claude and Gérard Bonnet with only a handful of hectares. Over time and with strong commitment and passion, the Bonnet’s have expanded the estate to a total area of 50 hectares, producing unique wines with great innovation and flair.
The particular combination of unique soil make-up, a rich assortment of grape varietals, and old vines ensure that La Bastide Saint Dominique wines are of exceptional quality. Their vines are planted in safre on the surface, resting on limestone. The rest of the vineyard is composed of red clay and round pebbles which contribute to maintaining heat and regenerating it when needed. All cultural practices match the requirements of the Organic Farming Regulation.
