"Simply wine."

Bernard van Berg is quite the character: former Belgian photographer, he decided to do a complete 180 and become a winemaker in France. Before, as a wine lover, he was always hard to please. But, when he met famous viticultor Rémi Jobard during a wine tasting event in Paris, Bernard began to wonder... Why was he so rarely satisfied? After he moved to Meursault with his wife Judy, he finally realized something: the ideal wine he's been looking for doesn't exist. So, he'll have to make it himself! His very first cuvée came out in 2002.

Bernard takes very good care of his vineyard: he leaves it alone most of the time, doesn't use fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides (the estate is AB certified since 2008), doesn't add many sulphites to his wine... He's so respectful of the terroir that he even uses a horse to plow the soil! Bernard Van Berg is a passionate man, someone who treats his vineyard like one would treat a rose garden. You won't find many people as dedicated towards nature as he is.

He's clearly looking for quality above all else. Analyzing every grape like a true photographer, trying to determine how to nurture it best. In total, Van Berg owns 20.000 vine stocks, across 2 hectares. The yield is voluntarily low, with only 600-3000 bottles per year. The wines are kept in his cellar for 24 months, in brand new barrels, before being sold. Nowadays, the Van Bergs are enjoying a well-deserved retirement since 2018 and the estate has been bought by another winemaker, Tino Kuban.
