Jean Pierre Gaussen and his wife Julia began their life of winemaking in the early ’60s, establishing themselves with only one hectare of vines. Through hard work and determination, Jean Pierre now has grown his holdings to 12 hectares of the highest reputation in the Bandol AOC, which are farmed traditionally, without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Their wines are vinified (100% de-stemmed and primarily using gravity) in their subterranean cave located near Cadière d’Azur. Jean-Pierre’s daughter, Mireille, now works in partnership with her father.
