In the depths of the Bandol appellation, on the edge of the mediterrannée, the Moulin des Costes in the Cadière D'Azur is an exceptional place at the top of limestone hills. In 1961, when the estate was acquired, the land was already partially replanted to the classification norms of Bandol, and thus offered a bright future for the new young owners Paul and Pierre Bunan. The terraces of the Moulin des Costes, overlooking the Mediterranean, are a typical example of the local classification. The vineyard is planted with Mourvèdre and Grenache vines that are 45 years old.
In 1961, Paul and Pierre Bunan, men steeped in the wine-growing lore of the Mediterranean, fell in love with an estate in the Bandol region, a noble and widely respected wine growing area in the south of France.
Paul’s son, Laurent, returned to the family estate after completing his studies in oenology and winemaking in California. He was the first of the next generation to open the doors to a newer and more modern approach. Today he is in charge of the export and development of the Domaines Bunan. His sister Françoise is in charge of the communications with art playing a central role in her strategy. Pierre’s daughter Claire, has qualified in the field of wine marketing. Her brother Philippe hopes to become an agricultural engineer. The combined talents of this family unite to create a warm, welcoming and highly skilled team. Excellence and authenticity are the hallmarks of this family who pride themselves on producing wines of exceptional quality.
