The Bellet wine « Collet de Bovis » is produced at Fogolar Estate, situated on an ancient Roman road. It overlooks the Var valley and the Mediterranean Sea. The first vines were planted in 1974. Successive extensions have brought the property to expand over 4 ha. It is a family run winery lead by Jean Spizzo who combines his passion for wine with his job as a University professor, specialized in theater and Italian literature.
The wines are exported to the United States. Collet de Bovis includes amongst its clients Alain Ducasse. According to Jean Spizzo: the “grands vins” are part of the cultural heritage. Art naturally goes hand in hand with vine/wine. Thus, the “Fogolar” hosts painting exhibitions and theatre performances during the high season.
