Around 1889 Emile Bodin, my great grandfather chose to become a winemaker in Cassis and created the vineyard of Clos Val Bruyère.
Our own story begins a hundred years later when my parents and I chose to completely change our lives and careers to take care of the few vines left by heritage by my grandfather.
The same year, we bought Château Barbanau with its abandoned wine storehouse, built a brand new wine- cellar and created the first vintage in 1989. Since then the Château Barbanau brand has gone from strength to strength. Today, Didier, my husband, and I are in charge of Château Barbanau.
