COMMANDERIE DU BONTEMPS
Wine-producing regions in France have commanderies to promote their wines and enhance their reputation. Commanderie du Bontemps is one of 76 wine brotherhoods in France. Its spirit is based on medieval chivalry. Under the philosophy that “if nothing in this world can be perfect, we will at least continue to move forward toward the unattainable goal,” they study grape growing and winemaking technology, provide information and training to wine growers and conduct public relations activities.
＊Bontemps is a wooden bowl in which egg whites to be used for fining and clarifying wine are beaten. It is said that the commandery was named after it as a symbol of winemaking.
