Our business is complex; so we'd like this visit to bring you closer to our universe. Bernadotte wines are made with humanity because they are a common asset of pleasure and generosity. Each bottle contains the vine carefully worked by the men of Bernadotte, but also the seasons, time, sensitivity and mystery. These are all the elements that make up a wine. This is what you enjoy in a glass of Bernadotte. Each tasting must be the promise of a new pleasure. Because our wine, like every wine, is unique. An appointment with the Chateau Bernadotte wines.

Chateau Bernadotte, Bourgeois Vintage

For a time in the giron of Pichon Longueville Countess of Lalande, its prestigious neighbor, Bernadotte retained from this kinship the requirement of excellence. A singular Bourgeois Vintage that continues to rise over the years, Chateau Bernadotte renews itself and distinguishes itself as much by its visionary spirit as by an environmentally friendly and innovative management of the company. Responsibly operated, Chateau Bernadotte is certified as a High-Value Environmental operation.


Chateau Bernadotte & the environment 

As its major challenge for the future, Bernadotte has committed to an environmentally friendly management through a reasoned vineyard culture.

There is little or no use of chemical fertilizers, replaced by the supply of natural organic matter. The techniques remain traditional and incorporate strict control of yields. The harvest, performed fully manually until 2015, is now accompanied by the machine.


The property has been certified by AFNOR AREA 2 since 2015 and HVE 3 since 2016. These High Environmental Value labels attest that the reductions, or even the pollution eliminations, are effective.

The use of water is reasoned and saving energy is preferred.
