As part of his efforts to share his beliefs and expertise and support the shift towards organic viticulture in southern France, Gérard Bertrand has set up a long-term partnership scheme that supports winegrowers who are switching over to organic techniques, or are already using them, over a period of 10 years. These partnerships provide technical, organizational and financial support to help projects through to completion.
Acclaimed as much for his talent as a blender as for his daring and creativity, Gérard Bertrand both innovates and develops remarkable international successes that combine premium wines with stylish bottle design in brands such as Cote des Roses, Naturae and Gris Blanc.
Gérard Bertrand promotes the Mediterranean lifestyle with a flourishing programme of events for tourists and lovers of culture and the arts, based primarily at Château l’Hospitalet in Narbonne, a major centre of wine tourism. Each summer for the past 17 years, his festival has played host to some of the biggest names in international jazz.
