Saving Sauternes

Olivier Bernard knows Bordeaux.

Born there in 1960, Bernard has spent his entire life in the region—and has worked in the wine industry since 1978 when he opened a small wine shop. In 1983, he took over the operations at Domaine de Chevalier after his family purchased the historic estate in Pessac-Léognan. And he has been president of the Union des Grands Cru, the promotional body for Bordeaux’s top producers, since 2012.
