Gérard Bertrand and his teams inaugurated yesterday, Thursday, July 25, 2019 the new cellar of Château de Villemajou, the family estate and cradle of AOC Corbières-Boutenac

46 years after Georges Bertrand's first vintage, Gérard Bertrand and his team inaugurate the new cellar of Château de Villemajou, in the presence of an assembly of 500 people. Historical and family cradle of Gérard Bertrand wines, the cellar has been enlarged to vinify all the production of the winery plot by plot.

A setting that will host the 2019 vintage which, one wishes, will be the first of the qualified designation in Cru Boutenac (file in course of instruction near the Inao).
