Les Domaines Bunan
La famille Bunan ~ Pierre, Claire, Laurent, Françoise, Paul
The rolling hills of Les Domaines Bunan, nestled between land and sea, the Saint Baume hill and surrounding medieval villages
Nestled in the heart of the Var department of Provence, Les Domaines Bunan has three vineyards located in La Cadière d'Azur and Le Castellet which produce AOC Bandol and AOC Côtes de Provence wine in red, white, and rosé.
Wine buffs will recall that AOC stands for the "Appellation d'origine contrôlée", which translates as "controlled designation of origin".
Since 2008, the Bunan vineyards have been in conversion toward becoming organic. The 2011 vintage will be the first to be officially labeled "ECOCERT".

"Art & Wine"
Françoise Bunan created the association l'Art prend l'Air four years ago which selects the artists and organizes an exhibit each year at the winery. Literally translated as "art goes out to take some air", "l'art prend l'air" is like a studio without walls.
