Story of a family passion for wine
THE QUEST FOR EXCELLENCE IN THE RESPECT OF BIODIVERSITY AND BIODYNAMIC PRINCIPLES
The birth of a passion for wine and biodynamics
It was in 1975, in the vines of the Château de Villemajou at the heart of the Corbières that Gérard Bertrand harvests its first grapes and discovers its passion for wine.
He will perfect his apprenticeship during twelve years at the side of his father Georges Bertrand.
Very attached to the values of performance and excellence learned on the rugby fields, Gérard Bertrand continues his quest: to reveal the best terroirs of his region and promote them throughout the world.
It is in this spirit that he took over the family torch at Domaine de Villemajou after the accidental death of his father in 1987. Five years later, he created the Gérard Bertrand wine company in order to develop a range of wines from the South of France.
In the following years, he will buy back the Domaine de Cigalus and the Château Laville Bertrou.
