Languedoc & Gérard Bertrand

Gismondi On Wine

1,127 Views 0

In the finale of our harvest video series set in France, we visit passionate biodynamic advocate Gérard Bertrand at the center of his operations, Château L'Hospitalet, just outside his beloved hometown of Narbonne. We also had a chance to visit his flagship Clos D'Ora estate, a biodynamic jewel nestled in Minervois La Livinière. This property is a shining example of his commitment to making the Languedoc a new French classic. Bertrand's passion extends into the winery as evidenced by the t-shirt he is wearing during our interview. Emblazoned with "Be the Change", it reflects Bertrand and his team's commitment to leaving the earth a better place than they found it, and as you will see, they are well on their way. Post-interview, we shared lunch in the garden nearby at the winery's hotel and restaurant where live jazz is a weekly Friday night event, and a Jazz festival, now in its 17th year, draws enthusiasts from around the world. That, along with an art gallery, connects the wine, food, and the Art de Vivre lifestyle Bertrand espouses. But why not watch and listen for yourself to Bertrand as he speaks from his soul on wine, food, and life.
