At Domaine André Berthet-Rayne, the passion for winemaking has been passed down for five generations.

The story began in 1880, when the great-grandfather owned several plots of land from which he farmed 6 hectares of vineyards, several olive groves.

Paul Berthet-Rayne, the father of André, subsequently grew this winemaking tradition. Through his work, the domaine’s vineyard and production grew substantially.

Today, André, his wife Marina and their daughter and son-in-law Alexandra and Axel, continue the work carried out with passion by their ancestors.

For 15 years, our approach has led us to an agriculture without excess: that is to say a complete stop while weeding, and a complete stop to fertilizer and chemicals.

We seek first of all to revive our soil, so the plant gets all the minerals in deeper soil, and thus it provides the most natural result possible.

In 2008, we asked a certifying conversion to organic. It will be obtained for the vintage 2011.
10 years later, in 2021, we decided to start a conversion in biodynamic with Biodyvin’s certification label.
