Gérard Bru, owner of the Puech-Haut estate, is a man of great personal resources. An industrialist who decided to go into wine production, he returned to his oldest passion: working on the land.
His habit is to think big! For him, half-measures will never do. He knows where he’s going and how to get there. From his years in industry, he has honed the skills of management and development. He is a man of the “land” and he has always been someone who insists on concrete results and not just talk. While some dream and plan, he is a doer. Starting with a land devoid of any grapes, he has built what is now one of the largest vineyards in the region, and at its heart was born the “Château Puech-Haut”, built from the stones of the old Prefecture of Montpellier. This was originally a bourgeois residence built in Italian style between the 17th and 18th centuries, and it was slated for demolition.
