Domaine Castell-Reynoard is situated within the commune of La Cadière D’Azur. Its origins date back to Henry Reynoard, a marine officer who, after numerous voyages abroad developed a passion for wine. In 1892, he acquired the vineyard and constructed a cellar on what is now the domaine. In 1927, the property changed its name, with Henry’s daughter, Claire, marrying Joseph Castell. At this time, the grapes were all delivered to the local co-operative. In 1989 Jean-Marie became the third generation to take charge. He increased the size of the cellar and began to develop the sales from the property, re-naming it Domaine Castell-Reynoard. Some twenty years later, it is Julien Castell who is at the helm and moving the domaine towards a biodynamic future. The vines have been certified as organic since 2014 and biodynamic from the 2017 vintage. There are 8 hectares of vines, ranging from 4 to 60 years old, with a further 7 hectares due to come into production.
