Gerard Bertrand is a winemaker of tremendous ability. More importantly he is an extraordinary human being. He has the vision of a poet and when he speaks it is uplifting and positive. His eleven great wine estates across the South of France contain the greatest collection of organic and biodynamic vines in the world.
In this podcast Gerard invites us into his world, a place where he feels uniquely honoured to be a part of.
The Gerard Bertrand website is a superb read. It is littered with worldly advice and is richly philosophic. For instance it describes his Clos d’Ora wine as ‘Unique and bordering on the sublime, the Clos d’Ora is, more than a wine, a unique experience, a suspended moment in which the intention of its creator, the work of man and animal, the patient power of the plant on the base of the mineral resonates.
The wines of Gerard Bertrand are brought to Ireland by O’Briens Wines. In addition, Dunnes Stores also imports from the Bertrand stable of labels.
