The history of the domain

The legend of the centuries tells us the stories of those men who, by wars or malice, conquered countries.

In the pages of this great tumultuous history, one sometimes reads wonderful tales. Like that of Domaine de la Bégude, the thousand-year-old epic of this land which, one day, captured the hearts of the Tari family …

For a long time, La Bégude was a stopover on the road that led from Marseille to Toulon, a shelter for the night where you could find feasts, shelters and “beguda”, the drink in Provencal. In the XVIIth century, the travelers as well as the pilgrims going to the mountain Sainte Baume, sometimes came across Gaspard de Besse and his band, Robin Hoods of the hills, refugees during the day in the caves of the surroundings.

As a stopover, the Domaine de la Bégude became in 1996 the start of Guillaume and Soledad Tari’s vintage journey. Seventh generation of winegrowers, raised at Château Giscours in Margaux, Guillaume Tari naturally became Bandolais, in love with the Mourvèdre grape variety and it’s terroir that suits him best.

Located on the highest point of the Bandol appellation, at an altitude of 410 meters, its 500 hectares of land lie in the shade

of the mountain Sainte Baume, on the well named Cadière d’Azur, protecting in their garrigue ramparts, 30 hectares of vines divided into 55 plots.

One of them, overlooking the sea, shelters a conservatory to the glory of Mourvèdre: the largest reservoir in the world of this cépage, which brings together more than 150 varieties. An open-air museum.

Seduced by the beauty of this wild nature on the mediterrenean coast and determined to protect it, Guillaume Tari banned, upon his arrival in 1996, all weedkillers, pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Living within 500 hectares of unspoiled nature, far from any non-organic farming practice was an invaluable opportunity.

From this magnificent terroir between the Mediterranean and the bluish rocks of the Provençal hinterland, flow wines with great aging potential, from organic farming, that don’t comply to fashion and artifice. Bathed in sea breeze and crowned with the Bandol appellation, the wines are aged in the old chapel de la Miséricorde of Conil from the 7th century, a vestige of the presence of the Abbey of Saint Victor on the domaine.

The Tari family, now guardian of this thirst-quenching stopover, takes the greatest care of the estate and its vineyard so that each of its vintages reflects the splendid beauty of this land and tells you its story.
