Les Vignobles de Berne
As everyone knows, Provence is the birthplace of rosé wines and this colour is particularly honoured at the Vignobles de Berne vineyards. Their rosés are fruity, with a pretty salmon-pink robe, but each has their own very special personality.
Vines have been grown on the Château grounds since Roman times. Situated on the Aurelian Wa - a Roman road formerly linking Italy and Spain - the vineyard was also a trading post of wines; the amphoras used to transport the precious beverage that was made on site.
Château de Berne’s vine plots are set on a chalky terroir. They are mainly South-facing and sheltered by 1,500 acres of forests. This varied soil and climate offers optimal growing conditions for a wide variety of grapes, 10 of which are regularly used to make the Château wines: Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Sémillon, Ugni-Blanc, Viognier, Cabernet, Carignan, Rolle and Mourvèdre.
Contrary to general trends, Château de Berne strives to offer its rosé wines a genuinely individual personality, as witnessed by the increasing use of indigenous yeasts to instil each vintage with the very essence of Provence.
Château de Berne is an environmentally-aware vineyard and pays particular attention to ecology and the natural environment at each stage of the wine growing process. Implemented around 15 years ago, its friendly growing techniques, without chemical fertilisers, are compliant with the ‘Agriculture Raisonnée’ quality label.
