Why do we do flash sales on our wines?
Flash sales or not, the quality of the wine on sale remains the same! Sometimes defects in the wine can be encountered, regardless if they are on sale or not. These are explained by the use of certain treated materials or the action of micro-organisms. That said, it is also a matter of perception. Indeed, each taster has their own level of sensitivity and therefore faults in the wine are not perceived in the same way. The Château de Berne flash sales are an opportunity for you to take advantage of good deals on our selection of wines.
