The Vineyard

A few words from the Bergasse family about their very unique terroir and history.

 

“Our heritage, celebration as a way of life, the art of wine as a key to our culture.

 

Welcome to the heart of Languedoc, to the Saint-Chinian terroir. Here, in the south of France, on our limestone terraced hills, the vines share the land and sun with the garrigue and olive trees. Our family vineyard consists of 40 hectares on which we use a system of sustainable agriculture in order to preserve the lasting quality of its soils.

 

In fact, the property has been in our family for nearly five centuries (since 1551), passed down from generation to generation. In the grounds of our property we’ve found the remains of a Gallo-Roman villa. Our house itself dates from 1911, and is decorated with a Bacchic fresco, showing that the family has always had a tradition of wine-making and festivity.

 

WHAT MAKES OUR WINES TASTE THE WAY THEY DO?

 

Four factors: our climate, our terroir, the grapes we choose to grow, and our skill in making our wines.

 

Our hot Mediterranean climate is tempered by the north wind – the Tramontane - from the mountains of the Cévennes. Cool nights help our grapes ripen gently, and the breezes dry up any moisture that might spoil them, so they are in the best possible shape when picked.

 

Our vineyards feature three main soil types:

• Rolled pebbles which help us make rounded, supple and fruity wines

• Limestone terraces which bring freshness, finesse and aromatic richness

• Sandstone which brings power, complexity and minerality

 

Finally, as winemakers, we use our know-how to work with the climate, the terroir and our vines in as natural and respectful a way as we can. Nature has given us this wonderful heritage, and we do our utmost to preserve and enhance it. That’s why we practise culture raisonnée, a balanced and sustainable approach to winegrowing. And in the winery, combining traditional winemaking with the most modern vinification methods enables us to achieve the best we can. It’s the combination of these four factors that gives wines from VIRANEL a real identity.”
