Philippe Bernard took over the property from his
parents in 2008.
He finished his wine education BTS at the wine school in Beaune in 1999
and then worked at domains in Burgundy and in Rhone.
Hans first vintage with his own name was 2008
Vacqueyras, and for wines from other appellations vintage 2010.
The domain covers a total of 22,5 ha, 0,5 ha
Gigondas, 18,5 ha Vacqueyras, 2 ha Beaumes de Venise and 1,5 ha Muscat
de Beaumes de Venise.
The vineyards of Vacqueyras has been certified agriculture biologique
Also in 2011 the domain asked for certification as biodynamique by
Demeter and it seams that they have succeded.at least for the vineyards
of Vacqueyras around 2012. Their website has not yet reached cyberspace
and therefore I have to guess about something - as par ecxample the
