From a family of winemakers settled in Saint Laurent des Arbes, on the other side of the Rhône, Bernard Duseigneur took over the Domaine in 2002. Previously an investment banker in the city, Bernard reconnected with his Mediterranean roots and continued in his father and brother, Jean and Frédéric's work. 

Bernard has been in partnership with Philippe Faure-Brac since 2007. Philippe was elected the worlds best sommelier in 1992, and Bernard is privileged to be working with him  as one of the world's finest wine connoisseurs who also possesses a true passion for terroirs and winemaking. 

Bernard sees winegrowing as a daily pleasure and a way of living in harmony with the the environment and fellow winemakers
