Winemaking Process: The grapes are harvested by hand, which have been cultivated in harmony with the nature.

Athénaïs de Béru - the talented vigneron at the helm of this 400-year-old family Château de Béru - is one of the rising stars in Chablis. At a relatively high 400m elevation, the south-facing Béru slope is ideal for the production of ripe, healthy grapes. Although farming biodynamically and making her wines with minimal sulphur additions, Athénaïs is wary of the dogma surrounding natural wines; the domaine takes a pragmatic approach to 'hands-off' farming.
