in the Bandol hinterland, Lafran-Veyrolles Vineyard is located at La Cadière d’Azur.
Their great-grandfather, Romain VENTRE, left it in 1917 this vineyard to his granddaughter, CLEMENT. She was immensely attached to the land and as of 1929, her husband Louis FEREC, who was a FINE ARTS painter, active resident member of the Academy of VAR and hardly someone thought to be destined to winegrowing, loved it as well: firstly, to paint it and then truly owning it and turning it into a real masterpiece. He was no longer a ‘Poet and farmer’
He was a ‘Painter and wine grower’. He dedicated a great amount of effort to rebuilding it, expanding it and renovating it during the bit of free time he had from his primary work. And that is how LAFRAN-VEYROLLES became one of the leading BANDOL wines. The size is modest yet there is so much love… So much so that the CLEMENT-FEREC couple passed on their love for the Vineyard and its Wine to their daughter and, today, after having done other jobs, this daughter and her husband, the FEREC-JOUVE family now operate the Estate.
