Deeply attached and committed to the Languedoc and the Roussillon terroirs, Gérard Bertrand owns 16 Châteaux and wine-growing estates.
Convinced that a viticulture in harmony with nature is the best way to make great wines that reflect all the nuances of their terroir, Gérard Bertrand made the choice to adopt biodynamic practices in the vineyard early-on and is today a worldwide reference in biodynamics. He began converting his estates to biodynamics early in 2002, starting with the Domaine de Cigalus. From then on, he aimed to acquire total mastery of this practice and convert his teams and all of his vineyards. Today, the promise is fulfilled since all the estates are now grown in biodynamics. A rare savoir-faire in a very wide space, since the vineyards extend over 880 hectares, spread over a diversity of soils and terroirs.
Known for his great talent for blending as well as for his audacity and creativity, he and his teams strive for promoting the South of France wines throughout the world. Diversifying experiences increases the expertise, which makes Gérard Bertrand and his teams an international benchmark in biodynamics.
