"Life is too beautiful for ordinary wine"
In 1988 Bernardus Pon bought out of the family business and left for the United States and started his vineyard in California. He wanted to make wines that could compete with the best wines in the world. The world famous Bernardus Chardonnay was served at multiple White House dinners and the Sauvignon Blanc was named the best white wine of 2005 by the Wall Street Journal. In 2019 he sold his business to Robert van der Wallen, who opened in 2018 a golfcourse in Cromvoirt, named after the wine. Would you like to taste these promising wines yourself? Shop here.
