Domaine du Bourrian is the oldest of nine wineries in the municipality of Gassin on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez in France. The region is glamorous and world-famous, known for its many hours of sunshine and gentle sea breezes, which also make this beautiful area suitable for viticulture. Located at the foot of the Gassin mountains, the earth is heated by the sun’s warm rays while the sea breeze provides moisture to the grapes and helps to create their unique taste and aroma.
The wines from Domaine du Bourrian have won numerous awards at prestigious wine competitions in France, and the winery produces only organic wines. There are two processes in particular that help to make the wines from Domaine du Bourrian something special: the vineyards where the organic grapes grow, and the winery, where the wines mature and are bottled.
The grapes are grown without the use of synthetic agents, so the vineyards have become part of a natural and self-sufficient ecosystem that does not need pesticides. The tasty wines from Domaine du Bourrian contain fewer sulfites than non-organic wines, which you as a wine connoisseur can no doubt both taste and will appreciate!
The 24 hectares of vineyards are dedicated to wines with the appellation Côtes-de-Provence and IGP. They are grown without the use of pesticides and have organic certification (ECOCERT).
The Grenache Noir, Tibouren and Rolle grape varieties create the winery’s delicate and tasty organic rosé wines according to the classic traditions of Provence.
Harvest is an important time for any winemaker. At Domaine du Bourrian this is no exception. The grapes are allowed to ripen until they have achieved the right amount of sugar and are most often ready for harvest in early September. Early in the morning, before the sun rises, the cool grapes are carefully picked and transported into the winery. Next, the grapes are cooled again before being gently pressed. This helps to raise the quality of Domaine du Bourrian’s fresh organic rosé wine from Provence.
