The History of Château de Berne

Château de Berne sits in the junction of Via Aurelia Roman Road, which further links Italy to Spain. People have been using this road for the wine trade for centuries. Cultivation of vines on this land started from the Roman times. The amphora transported the precious liquid of this site, as an evidence of the vineyard. In the 12th century, Raymond V and the Count of Toulouse donated the estate to Saint Bernard. The monks made a home here and started nurturing the rich soil of the area. In 1307, the King of France confiscated the land. For about five centuries, the property belonged to the Marquis de Villeneuve. In the 19th century Marius Estellon, former Commander of Army, enlarged the lands, planted new plots and modernized viticulture. This was the rebirth of Château de Berne.

The Modernization of Château de Berne

In the 20th century, the castle passed into different hands until 1985, then in 1995, Berne, an Englishman bought the vineyards and replanted 32 hectares, modernized the facilities and rebuilt the cellar to produce amazing wine. He did a study of the subtle composition of the soil over the 80 hectares, for the production of 500,000 wine bottles. In 2007, a British businessman bought Château de Berne. Château de Berne has combined quality with innovation and produced the first square shaped bottles of wine.
