CHATEAU DE BERNE

Provence has been a wine-growing area for nearly 2,600 years. Reputed throughout the world for its rosé wines, the region's temperate climate also makes it a cradle for fine wine growing in general. Wine making has been the Château de Berne's core activity since 1750. Today, the Château is planted with 292 acres of vines

Discover the seasons of Provence at the Château de Berne. In good weather, our spacious terrace in the shade of the olive trees invites you enjoy al fresco dining.

Indoors, amongst a neo-classic décor, choose between the bright, airy conservatory, or the cosy, intimate lounges. The dining room, decorated in beige and earthy tones is a marriage of luxury and authenticity. The respect for local tradition extends even to Benjamin Collombat's choice of tableware.

After lunch departure for a wine tasting at chateau Roseline & a visit of the Chapel

Chateau Sainte Roseline is a property dating back to the tenth century. It was founded by a hermit named Robaud who decided to settle there, attracted by it's calm beauty and the presence of an abundant spring. In the 14th century, under the influence of the Bishop of Fréjus (the future Pope Jean XXII in Avignon), the property became one of the most important vineyards in Provence. This traditional leadership role was perpetuated by the previous owner, Henri de Rasque de Laval, when he became the first president of the Var vineyards union.

In 1994, Mr Bernard TEILLAUD took the destiny of this great property into his hands, with the aim of making it one of the jewels of southern wine-making and a renowned artistic centre. Seven centuries of vine cultivation have demonstrated that the Chateau Sainte Roseline soil is one of the most exceptional in Provence. Furthermore, in 1955 it was awarded with the commendation of " CRU CLASSE ".

The clay-limestone soils and the presence of an underground spring allow the controlled nutrition of the vine necessary to produce great wines.

The Chapel

A true work of art, this holy site is primarily a renowned place of worship. Since 1329, the body of the revered Saint in her priestly robes has been lying inside its crystal reliquary.

Great artists have celebrated her: Marc CHAGALL with a remarkable mosaic depicting the meal of the Angels, Jean Bazaine and Raoul UBAC with their flamboyant stain glass windows, and Diego GIACOMETTI with a relief and a bronze lectern (donated by Marguerite Maeght in 1976). An altarpiece from the School of Brea shows Sainte Roseline and her parents, the Marquis and Marquise de Villeneuve, in a nativity scene.

Both of our airport drivers were excellent, and it was so reassuring knowing that they were there to pick us up and drop us off. Giverny was gorgeous, and our tour guide Paul really made the experience memorable. Our contact Edwige confirmed everything and made sure we were taken care of during our trip.

There were a lot of moving parts in our trip, that started in Paris, went through Reims and Champagne, to Strasbourg and Alsace, to Annecy and then Geneva. W arranged for terrific guides, one more knowledgeable and interesting after the next. The drivers were very friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful cooking class in Alsace. Just a perfectly arranged trip.

Beautiful Day In the Rhone Valley

By: Jessica L


Reviewed on: 27 Sep 2017

I had an incredible day with Laurent in the Northern Rhone Valley. I have always wanted to see the vineyards of Cote Rotie and Condrieu. Laurent was so knowledgable about not only the wine regions, but also the food, history, and architecture of the region. His hospitality was also very genuine as I could tell he was very concerned about my personal expectations and goals of the tour. I learned so much in one day that I now have to go back to do more exploration of the things I wasn't able to read about on-line when doing some studying prior to my trip. Laurent completely exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend his tour services to anyone looking to explore this region of France.

While visiting Paris, we decided to take a day trip to Champagne. W Travel France provided the transportation and itinerary. We could not have spent a more enjoyable day in Champagne. Our guide arranged for visits to two Champagne houses (one small and one large) for tastings and lunch at a local brasserie, all the while educating us on the history of the region. Very well done!
