In 1983, our father moved to our mother’s village, Sainte-Gemme-en-Sancerrois, where together they built Domaine Berthier from scratch. The domaine has continued to grow for nearly 30 years. In 1998, he took over the Coteaux du Giennois vineyards that our grandfather had worked for many years as he was one of the first vignerons who championed to create this appellation. This appellation is the tiniest of the Central Loire, like a pearl, with terrific potential to make great wine from its amazing terroir of Silex for the most part, limestone and clay (terre blanche). In 2012, we started working with friends in the Pouilly Fumé appellation, to create a unique terroir wine from only Kimmeridgien soil. In 2015 we took over a new vineyard in the north of the appellation Giennois, very old vines (between 35 to 100+ years old) only on Silex soil. All the old vines and red grapes are hand-harvested, with a combination of hand-harvesting and machine harvesting for the rest of the production.
We consider our farming practices to be very clean; no herbicides, no pesticides, no anti-botrytis and in some areas we are practicing organic. Florian (the younger son), honed his talents as a vigneron in French vineyards in Burgundy and abroad (New Zealand and Oregon). He now manages the vineyards. In 2012, Clément (the oldest son) joined the business having spent 2 years in Canada and the USA as assistant winemaker in the Willamette Valley, OR (Soléna Estate). He is now handling the winemaking and marketing of our wines.
