Bandol is a commune in Var department, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, southeastern France. Bandol and the seat of its eponymous commune, was founded in 1595 and built around a small military fort.The Bandol wine region, located near the coast east of Marseille and Cassis, is one of Provence’s most internationally recognized wine regions. Built around the village of Bandol, west of Toulon, the Bandol AOC covers the production of 8 communes with silicon & limestone soils. Those soils and the warm, coastal climate are ideally suited for the late ripening Mourvèdre grape which is the major variety of the region. For both the red and rosé wines, Mourvèdre must account for at least 50% of the blend, though most producers will use significantly more, with Grenache & Cinsaut usually filling out the rest of the wine’s composition.Notable people Alain Bombard, scientist Alexander Lévy, professional golfer Louis Lumière, cinematographer Paul Ricard, businessman Jonny Wilkinson, rugby playerInternational relationsBandol is twinned with: Nettuno, Italy Onex, Switzerland Wehr, GermanyWhen using our France sightseeing app, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
