The producer

Vignobles Bardet

Roger Bardet passed on to his son Philippe a passion for growing wine, a taste for doing work well and a deep respect for the estate.

In 2008, Philippe took over Château Franc le Maine, another Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.“A subtle blend of technical innovations and environmental practices designed to reveal the treasure within our terroir.” Vignobles Bardet uses inventive practices that respect the natur.

They seek to reduce the impact of their activities on the environment by adopting practices that protect nature's balances, such as using grass as a cover crop between the rows of vines, developing hedging around the different plots to reconstitute  natural ecosystems, maintaining a weather station to observe local weather patterns afecting the vines, strictly sorting waste and exploiting geothermal energy.
