Gérard Bertrand buys neighbouring Mas du Soleilla in La Clape in Languedoc

Gérard Bertrand’s empire in Languedoc is growing. He recently bought Mas du Soleilla, a 22-hectare vineyard adjacent to Bertrand’s headquarters Château l’Hospitalet in the appellation of La Clape. Mas du Soleilla was founded by Peter Wildbolz and Christa Derungs, both Swiss. 2002 was their first vintage. Mas de Soleilla is, like the Château l’Hospitalet, certified organic. Over the years, Peter Wildbolz has released highly appreciated wines, such as Les Chailles, Les Bartelles and Clot de l’Amandier.

Château l’Hospitalet has 80 hectares of vineyards in La Clape but also a hotel, two restaurants, an art gallery and 900 hectares of hiking areas in the La Clape nature reserve. Gérard Bertrand is one of Languedoc’s largest wine producers and he owns another 300 hectares of vineyards in the Languedoc and also has a négociant business where he cooperates with 40 wine growers around Languedoc-Roussillon.
