Traveling to Chateau L’Hospitalet

I recently traveled to France for the celebration of @historyandwine‘s wedding, which took place at the gorgeous Chateau L’Hospitalet. Owned by Gérard Bertrand and located in the south of France, Chateau L’Hospitalet was the perfect backdrop for this stunning occasion.

L’Hospitalet is a 1,000-hectare estate, entirely dedicated to the art of living, to the discovery of wines and terroir. It is located in the heart of the protected massif of la Clape, an ancient link in the Pyrenees chain, a Phoenician and then Roman island, the cradle of the vine in France. As early as the 13th century, the Hospices de Narbonne moved to la Clape, linked to the continent by the alluvial deposits of the Aude since the end of the Middle Ages. Documents from 1561 attest to its mission of welcoming and sharing with pilgrims.

This hospitality inspired Gérard Bertrand who has made L’Hospitalet the beating heart of his action around the Mediterranean art of living since he acquired the property in 2002. The Château has a hotel, a restaurant, a tasting and sales cellar, and an Art Space.

The week’s wedding festivities kicked off with a welcome cocktail reception in the Jazz Bar Patio. We drank a variety of @gerardbertrandofficial wines, nibbled on tasty hors d’oeurves, and enjoyed the al fresco evening under the stars.
