History
Introducing... Patrick Bernard and Millésima

Welcome to Millésima. For those of you who don't know us, allow us to introduce you to the company and its founder and Managing Director, Patrick Bernard.
Millésima was founded in 1983 by Patrick Bernard and thanks to its expertise and reliability has become Europe's leading fine wine mail order merchant.
The company began life as Les Vins des Grands Vignobles and became Millésima in 1988, when it published its first catalogue of 100 of Bordeaux's greatest wines, the Grands Crus Classés. Patrick Bernard's aim then, as now, was to bring some of the world's greatest wines direct to wine lovers from the Châteaux.
Since 1992, we have published our list every year on January 1st and it is now available in Germany (€), Belgium(€), Portugal (€), Austria (€), France (€), Switzerland (CHF), Great Britain (£), Ireland (€), Luxembourg (€),Italie (€) and Spain (€). Over the past 15 years, we have made over 300,000 deliveries to more than 65,000 satisfied customers and our expert knowledge and range of top Bordeaux wines is recognised and applauded by the international wine press and the wine trade. We continue to supply more and more wine enthusiasts with top wines from France, Europe and the rest of the world.
