This cellar cultivates good wines at reasonable prices. With a century of experience (!) this cooperative winery in Besse-sur-Issole has come a long way. In the past few years it has made a clear increase in quality to meet the demands of todays connoisseurs.


The tasting room of the cooperative is also a library. A very peculiar one indeed, since it only displays one author on its shelves: Behem. The designer based in Besse-sur-Issole has been publishing for several years a series of comics dedicated to the local star: Gaspard Bouis aka Gaspard de Besse. 

Original and unusual

One of the best vintages of the Cellier de Gaspard is called "Reserve de Saint-Just," referring to the former Cooperative, established over decades in the nearby village of St. Anastasia. This entity disappeared in 2003 when its members voted for the merger with their counterparts in Besse-sur-Issole.
