Jean-Pierre, Mélissa & Loïc BERGEY

My first wine memory
The grape harvest, the conviviality, the pleasure

One word to describe my wine

The history of the Château
The Domaine Le Temple de Tourteyron is run by Jean-Pierre, Mélissa and Loïc, 3rd and 4th generations of the Bergey Family, which traces it’s ancestry back to the Knights of the Order of the Temple. Indeed, the Domaine’s name, which can be found on wine bottles dating as early as 1900, comes from the members of the religious and military order known as l’Ordre des Templiers who greeted and aided pilgrims following the Way of St James. The over part of the Domaine’s name, « Tourteyron » stems from an old French dialect and means tourterelle or “turtledove”. A few of these migrating birds (presently a protected species in the Médoc) used to find annual shelter on the family’s land. The Domaine’s history continues to grow and evolve. Today, the vineyard is comprised of 130 ha of land (grapevines, meadow and forested land) of which 19 ha hold the AOC Médoc quality distinction. In addition, the land is also home to herd of Charolais cows.

Food pairings for my wine
Meat, cheese. In all occasions (aperitif, meal, without food).
