BARTON & GUESTIER APPELLATIONS
Barton & Guestier has successfully upheld the tradition of selecting, vinifying, bottling and shipping the fine French Appellation wines to more than 130 countries.
Laurent Prada, B&G head winemaker, and his team work daily in partnership with almost 150 winegrowers to produce the 19 wines of our collection of the greatest French Appellations: Bordeaux, Loire Valley, Beaujolais, Bourgogne, Rhone Valley and Provence.
All the wines are made of grapes grown in specific areas, with a strict control of grape varieties, yields and winemaking methods. Depending on the Appellation, wines are aged in oak barrels or in stainless steel vats. B&G winemakers monitor all the steps of the process including pruning, harvesting, vinification, ageing, blending and bottling.
