Bernard-Massard

The house

 


Bernard-Massard is the main producer of sparkling wines in accordance with the “méthode traditionnelle” of Luxembourg

A family business for five generations, our vocation is to create wines of impeccable quality, while respecting traditions and constantly opening up to social, environmental and qualitative progress. Our teams work every day in the vineyards and cellars with a single aim: to offer to our clients a moment of pleasure.

In existence for almost 100 years,
we have remained faithful to the values and entrepreneurial spirit of our founders. It is with passion and in constant qualitative research that our team of 85 people develops and markets each year beautiful vintages and outstanding Luxembourg wines.

Today,
the company is the leading family producer of still and sparkling wines in Luxembourg with a total production of nearly 3,500,000 bottles.

Bernard-Massard’s notoriety extends far beyond our small borders. As fervent ambassadors of our country abroad, we export our wines to more than 20 countries, with a presence in Belgium since its foundation, and also in many other markets such as Finland, Canada and Great Britain, to name but a few. The many awards received in international competitions all testify to the quality of Bernard-Massard’s products.
