- Cedric Gravier took the reins of the family homestead in the 90's and turned it from selling grapes to a cooperative into an estate winery. Going old school in the vineyards (with help from his grandfather), his 40-75 year old plots sit in squinting distance of the Mediterranean. Their Bandol rouge ages for 18 months in both foudres and demi-muids and is bottled unfiltered and unfined.
