Gérard Bertrand reveals the history of the great terroirs of the South of France in the Heritage range. Already recognized before the reign of Louis XIV, it was in 1618 that the botanist Magnol in his book Sylve Plantarium named Piquepoul among the most famous grape varieties in Languedoc. The limestone soil bordering the Mediterranean Sea offers a fresh and dry white wine.

One of the most dynamic and brilliant winemakers from the South of France, where he owns no fewer than seven estates among the most prestigious terroirs of Languedoc Roussillon; in 2012 ex-Rugby star Gérard Bertrand received honours for "European Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast and "Red Wine Maker of the Year" by the IWC.
