The cool nights at the Triassic Plateau, combined with the limestone-rich soil, play a vital role in giving a smooth finish and structure to the wines produced in this region. The climate also helps the grapes to ripen slowly, which makes them taste heavenly when enjoyed along with contemporary cuisine.
The wine cellar at Chateau De Berne has the capacity to produce 750,000 bottles every year. You have to visit these cellars to understand how modern technologies exist in perfect harmony with centuries-old winemaking traditions to create wines that are world-class and unique.
