Berne was born and raised in Beaujolais, but his family is not in the wine industry. He created the estate on his own in a gritty, old-fashioned way.
In 2016, the French wine organization AdVini awarded Berne the title “Wine grower of the future.” With 50 candidates and 7 finalists, the award is given to the vigneron/vigneronne who represents “an ambitious project that enhances his/her wine region and whose wines are selected by the finest restaurants in France and abroad.” This honor, lost in translation from New York to Colorado to San Francisco, is a big shot accomplishment in France. How many times have you heard the words “up and coming producer” or “rising star?” Too many. That’s why we won’t attach these names to Frédéric Berne. He is a winemaker of now, of the moment, walking forward on his yellow brick road.
