Presentation

The Lafourcade Cachard family consists of the mother, Elisabeth, the father, Michel, the daughter, Sophie, and the son, Ludovic. These passionate winegrowers work hand in hand to perpetuate tradition on this estate founded in 1791, which has preserved many vestiges of its past while adapting to keep up with the times.

Extra

The family works the plantations by massal selection, using the grandparents' vines to create new ones, thus perpetuating the DNA of the estate, its identity and its wines. Elisabeth or Sophie will warmly welcome you for tasting the end product, in a cellar set in a typical Provençal farmhouse.

Original and unusual

The winegrowers still use an enormous 1852 press for their Bandol reds, which allows for a gentle and slow pressing that gives more feminine wines with round and silky tannins. It is therefore a whole family that stands behind each bottle, working in a rustic atmosphere — with a dozen peacocks and sheep— full of history. For more than 20 years they’ve been working accordingly to their philosophy, as close as possible to organic and responsible farming.
