"Wine is inextricably linked to humans; it allows, according to the meetings and exchanges it creates to open new horizons. That's what feeds me." - Philippe Benezet of Domaine Turenne
The family vineyard property of the beginning of the 20th century will undergo evolutions from the arrival of Philippe Bénézet in 1990. Deeply anchored in the south and in love with his Var landscapes, he decides to devote himself to this vineyard with the desire to master the winemaking process from start to finish. The creation of the cellar took place in 1994.
Domaine Turenne has voluntarily remained on a human scale. Today it has 20 hectares planted with the main Côtes-de-Provence grape varieties: Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, Cinsault, Petite Clairette du Var and Rolle (Vermentino).
More than half of these vines are from the 60s and 70s. Some are much older, such as this Petite Clairette du Var, native grape, dated back in 1903, which Philippe and Cécile Bénézet view with great respect.
