Domaine Rouge Garance


Profile of the winegrowers

It is close to Pont du Gard, in the quiet village of St Hilaire d'Ozhilan, that Bertrand and Claudie chose to settle in 1997. After 20 years as winegrowers for the local cooperative, their great adventure began. With the support of their neighbour and friend, famous actor Jean-Louis Trintignant, their dream became reality. Their flight was immortalized by the great artist, Enki Bilal, who illustrated the first label of a bird which has now become the emblem of the estate. But here, the star is Bertrand, the soul of the wine. In constant search of progress, he works with rigour and precision. Its vines are cultivated organically, the harvest is manual and the vinifications are natural. With the precious help of Claudie, his wife, he cultivates a subtle freshness, fragrance and smoothness.
