The Winemaker

Wishing to respect as well as possible the nature of their terroirs and the typicity of their wines, the estate is certified in organic farming and has been practicing biodynamics for several years. They use no chemicals and produce natural, rich and complex wines.

The farm has existed since the early 1900s, but it was not until the 1950s that Maurice Bernard (the grandfather) favored the cultivation of the vine. Father Jacques Bernard, developed the vineyard by planting numerous plots of vines to reach a total area of ​​50 ha. In 2008, Philippe Bernard (son of Jacques) and Elisabeth (his wife) created their own winery and continued the work undertaken by their parents by applying for certification in organic farming. They are now the 5th generation of winegrowers, and cultivate 60 hectares of vines of prestigious appellations such as Vacqueyras, Baumes de Venise or Gigondas.

The Appellation
