After partnering for ten years, Gérard Bertrand and the Héraclès winery made a pledge to work together for another ten years on September 6. The trading firm and co-operative winery signed a partnership agreement aimed at developing organic and sulphite-free wines, with a long-term production target of 50,000 hl. The agreement provides for the establishment of a collaboration department to monitor the vineyards throughout the growing season. It also specifies joint decisions on harvest dates and usage of the grapes. Together, both firms will manage the winemaking process. Precise specifications will be followed in the co-operative winery’s cutting-edge facilities which were renovated in 2018 and have a capacity of 90,000 hl. Gérard Bertrand will now market most of the winery’s organic wines and wines in the switch-over phase to organic under the Change, Autrement and Naturae labels.
