The vineyards stretch to seven hectares which comprise of soil of Pliocene origin with the presence of fossils, shells and stones therefore ideal earth from which to obtain their well-structured red wines. The name Le Bèrne derives from the Etruscan word 'Verna' or 'Verena' which signifies 'Winter' on top of the hill.
