Louis Bernard, now based in Gigondas, was founded in 1976 in the heart of the Rhône valley, the home of Côtes-du-Rhône and many legendary wines. With an inventive and unconventional approach based on quality-oriented partnerships, Louis Bernard brings together wine properties with a common ambition: to get the best from their vines and their expertise in order to produce great wines.
In order to produce full-bodied, vigorous wines with fruity and spicy flavours, we chose Grenache as our main grape. This enables us to make voluptuous, concentrated, supple, generous wines which express the full richness of their terroir and are an invitation to conviviality and culinary delights.
Linking the past to the present, the label on our bottles has a classic ogival arch shape, recalling a stained glass window, and the illuminations reflect the region's rich history, while the overall graphical style is sleek and modern. The distinctive crest engraved on the bottles and the LB seal reinforce our guarantee of quality and set us apart.
The terroirs of the Rhône valley are well-suited to minimise the use of pesticide and to develop organic methods. That was the base of our environmental philosophy. We have adopted this way of working across the board, embracing corporate social responsibility within the company through water recovery, recycling of paper and optimisation of resources used. We also incorporate eco-design in the production of our wines, for example by introducing lighter-weight bottles.
