Gerard Bertrand

With 16 estates located on the most remarkable terroirs of the South of France, Gérard Bertrand is the Ambassador of the Great Wines of Languedoc throughout the world. From the high altitude vineyards near the Pyrenees to the volcanic soils of the Terrasses du Larzac and the coastal vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the wineries cover 850 hectares cultivated using biodynamic methods. Witness the unique diversity of grape varieties and terroirs, the exceptional vineyards are located on the most beautiful crus of the South of France, Corbières-Boutenac, Terrasses du Larzac, Minervois La Livinière, La Clape, Limoux, Cabrières … to name but a few.

Gérard Bertrand wines are above all a family affair.

Three generations of winegrowers, from Paule to Georges, then Gérard Bertrand.

In 1975, Georges Bertrand introduced his son Gérard, then ten years old, to grape harvesting on the Château de Villemajou in Corbières. Georges Bertrand played a precursory role in the revelation of the terroirs of Languedoc, he opened the way to the recognition of the Boutenac cru.

Gérard Bertrand has been sharing his passion for wine and his convictions as well as his father’s pioneering spirit for more than 30 years.

A fourth generation is in the making. Gérard Bertrand’s rare talent as an assembler is shared with his team. A unique know-how, transmitted and cultivated with his wife Ingrid, and his two children, Emma and Mathias.
