Gérard Bertrand's Winery

Winery of the Year - Wine Enthusiast 2011

Product ID: 323
Description

Winegrowing is part of the historical and cultural heritage of Château l'Hospitalet. Perfectly situated at the heart of the La Clape Massif conservation area and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the Château l’Hospitalet is a true haven of peace with 1,000 hectares of pine trees, scrubland and vines.
Named European Winery of the Year by international magazine Wine Enthusiast, the Hospitalet tasting cellar offers you a range of more than 90 flagship wines from Gérard Bertrand, the wine ambassador for the south of France.
Gérard Bertrand owns 9 winemaking estates with 470 hectares of vineyards across the best terroirs Languedoc has to offer. Each estate displays its own style, unique across the vintages. These are the stars of the Languedoc crus, mostly trailblazers, role models for their appellation. They are first and foremost ‘true’ chateaux steeped in history, whose wines regularly feature in competitions and guides.
The grapes are picked by hand, yields are low, and work is done in the vineyards to allow the old vines to bloom and to ensure a diverse range of grape varieties....

The grapes are picked by hand, yields are low, and work is done in the vineyards to allow the old vines to bloom and to ensure a diverse range of grape varieties. These estate wines are ‘hand-stitched’ by Gérard Bertrand.
Visiting wine lovers can browse more than 400m2 of vaults, visit the storage cellars, taste the best Gérard Bertrand crus and discover oenology through fun workshops. The cellar staff are on hand to provide advice and offer you wines to taste. All Gérard Bertrand wines have a common identity: they are wines expressing the South of France, balanced and elegant.
Guests can participate in a wine masterclass and make their own wine blending different varieties, following the advice of a professional. Once finished, they can taste their own wine and choose the winner!
The breathtaking wine producing estate also offers visitors accommodation in the beautiful hotel Château l'Hospitalet, a perfect place to enjoy French gastronomy, wine and relax.
Please note:

All wine tastings at Gerard Bertrand are completely free, no booking requiered. Clients can try all the wines that sold in the cellar (and all the different grape varieties). There is no limit on the number on wines that could be tried. One of the staff members will be with the clients (all of them are bilingual English – French) to explain how to enjoy wine, how to distinguish the different aromas and flavours. 
There is a 10% discount for clients that have eaten in the restaurant.
