Proprietors of Château Haut-Bana, the Berard family have lived in the winemaking haven of Medoc since 1760. Their well-established roots have enabled them to choose the finest “terroir” on the fertile peninsula. The winery itself has 37 hectares situated in the heart of the Medoc, bordering the left bank of the Gironde River. The Commune, as well as the estate are steeped in the ancient tradition & culture of the vines. Philippe Berard heads the family & employs both time honored techniques with modern ones, developing the best methods possible to ensure the highest quality for each harvest & wine. They practice “lute raisonnée” (the reasoned struggle) & have a great respect for the environment. Philippe has tremendous passion for making wine & for sharing that passion & his love of the Gironde & Medoc region with others.
