Wine Drinking in Texas…

The French region of Provence, while world-famous for its rosé wines, is less appreciated for the outstanding variety of its terroirs. The Côtes-de-Provence appellation alone spans six vast territories, running from East to West, each with its own unique soil type, geography, and climate.

Château de Berne, located in the Haut-Pays (Highland) area, is characterized by limestone hills and shallow valleys. This lesser-known, secret backcountry of Provence yields structured reds and fruity, delicate whites and rosés. The estate itself combines the best of two worlds in terms of geology and altitude. The heart of Berne’s vineyard, where 80% of its vines are located, is positioned on a chalky plateau, at an altitude of 980 ft. Cool nights, combined with a broad daytime temperature range, allow the grapes to mature slowly enhancing the wine’s freshness and delicate aromas.
