Wines from Gerard Bertrand

Embark on a journey of wine knowledge.

The winemaker

Gérard Bertrand discovered his passion for wine in 1975 when he took part in the family grape harvest at the Domaine de Villemajou in the Corbières. He then deepened his knowledge of wine for 12 years alongside his father Georges Bertrand. Emphasizing values such as performance and excellence, which he had honed on the rugby field, Gérard Bertrand continued his quest to showcase the best of his region's terroirs and market them worldwide.

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

In 1920, Paule Bertrand planted the family's first vines in the Corbières. Carignans that are now a valiant hundred years old.

In 1975, Georges Bertrand introduced his son Gérard, then aged ten, to harvesting at Château de Villemajou in the Corbières region. Georges Bertrand played a pioneering role in the revelation of Languedoc terroirs, and was instrumental in the recognition of the Boutenac cru.

Gérard Bertrand has been sharing his passion for wine and his convictions with his father's pioneering spirit for over 30 years.

A fourth generation is on the way. Gérard Bertrand's rare talent for assembly is shared with his team. A unique know-how, passed on and cultivated with his wife Ingrid, and his two children, Emma and Mathias.

With this in mind, he took over the family estate Villemajou after his father's tragic accident in 1987. Five years later, he founded the Gérard Bertrand wine company to expand the range of products from the south of France.

This rosé comes from a place where the soil gives it a strong taste and freshness. The grapes are hand-picked and kept cold before being pressed to preserve their good aroma. Even though it's young, this new batch has plenty of flavor. It tastes of red fruit with a touch of blackcurrant, exotic fruit and pineapple. It also has a fresh taste that lingers long after drinking. Overall, it's smooth and full-bodied, making it an excellent choice.
