Château Bernateau In Saint Emilion: Great Wines With Organic Growing And High-End Equipment

Organic wine productiong is important because it’s good for the environment. Many people like to buy organic products whenever they can. They feel they’re supporting the earth and they also feel it is healthier for them if what they consume has not been treated with harmful pesticides. There is a lot of organic wine. We have an example here. There is also some great equipment used here which is interesting because it shows you how wine can be made.

Key Takeaways:

  • Being organic is making wine with a twist, vineyard owner Pierrick chose to go organic in 2007. Creative thinking at its finest in a very demanding industry nonetheless.
  • Pierrick started the organic certification process in 2009,and are certified since the vintage 2012 which was put on the market in 2014. Making it official always pays off in the long run.
  • The wine is aged in French oak barrels. Sometimes 100% new barrels are used, it depends on the vintage of the wine. Perfection takes time so might as well make it count!
