Having already received high environmental value certification, the estate has been in the process of converting to organic farming since January 2018. This conversion naturally extends our commitment to the natural area around us. A strong involvement from all the vineyard and cellar teams has been key to making our first organic grape harvests a real success.
The Estate offers two hiking trails that crisscross through the vineyards, woodlands and the Neuf Riaux river, all whilst offering hikers one of the most stunning 360° panoramic views over the Massif des Maures.
The equestrian club, at the heart of our estate, is one of the most renowned in the area. It is a private stable where horse-owners offer pony and horse rides, competitive coaching and preparation sessions for competitions. The opportunity to explore the vineyards on horseback is attracting more and more visitors, from experts to novices, in search of a unique wine tourism experience.
Château des Bertrands is located at the heart of a Natura 2000 protected area. Natura 2000 is a network of natural sites classified at European level, recognised for their ecological wealth.
Château des Bertrands is home to protected flora and fauna and every day our winemakers work with the greatest respect for nature to protect the endangered species and vegetation of one of France’s richest natural areas. The region’s most emblematic species is the Hermann Tortoise, but it is also home to the Western Green Lizard and the Western Barbastelle Bat.
We strongly believe that whatever we give, nature will give back to us, the proof being the aromatic richness of our wines.
