STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Michel Bernard’s family has lived in Orange since the 17th century. « Mesnagers » or tenant farmers, the Bernards were to profit from the social upheavals of the French Revolution, buying their first vineyard soon after the conflict in 1794. This vineyard is still present nowadays.
Since 1971, Michel Bernard and his wife Dominique have run the vineyard, which they have developed since and in 2004, their eldest daughter joined the board.
Today Château Beauchêne has become the hub for the vinification and maturation of all the cuvees from the different vineyards owned by the family.
3 appellations are represented amongst the 70 hectares :
- Châteauneuf du Pape
- Côtes du Rhône Villages
- Côtes du Rhônes
