About the Winery
The history and origin of Domaine Berthoumieu go back to as late as the 1850s. The winery was established in Viella town in the department of Gers by Virgile Dutour. After that time, its story was primarily uneventful. Several generations later, Didier Barré and Marie-Line took over Domaine Berthoumieu, around the 1990s. Since then, the winery has been one of the most renowned in France.
Didier Barré and Marie-Line put in immense efforts and hard work behind Domaine Berthoumieu. They did so to make it a notable and undisputed name in the appellations of Pacherenc du Vic-Bilha and Madiran.

On the other hand, the latter appellation gets used for the red wines.
