Millésima - Lucien Bernard - Domaine de Chevalier - Sobovi

Groupe Bernard has operated in the wine and spirits sector in Bordeaux since 1928. From a family-run business specialised in the production and international trade of Eaux-de-vie de vin, the company Lucien Bernard diversified in 1983 through the creation of a business trading in fine Bordeaux wines, under the Millésima brand, and the acquisition of the Pessac-Léognan Cru Classé, Domaine de Chevalier.

Over the past 30 years, Groupe Bernard has continued to develop its three business areas and today it encompasses a set of activities and prestigious brands:

  • Eaux-de-vie de vin: Lucien Bernard, Valdronne, Gedesa.
  • Wine trading: Millésima, Sobovi, Wine and Co, as well as the Cru Bourgeois Château La Fleur Peyrabon and Château Peyrabon.
  • Winegrowing estates: Domaine de Chevalier, Domaine de la Solitude, Château Lespault-Martillac, Clos des Lunes.

With its brands, Groupe Bernard has developed export activity that exceeds 50% of its consolidated turnover. The company is specialised in the most sought after products and brands that benefit from the select distribution methods appropriate for luxury goods. Its four main companies, Millésima, Lucien Bernard, Domaine de Chevalier and Sobovi took the decision to support La Cité du Vin from the very beginning, as a Master Builder, to help promote this unique project which asserts Bordeaux’s historical calling of developing universal values related to wine.
