Bee populations are increasingly under threat, a trend that has serious consequences for biodiversity. Mindful of this, Bernard Magrez has reintroduced them into his prestigious Bordeaux vineyards which produce the grapes for some of the area’s finest wines. Installing hives encourages pollination and, just as they do for wines, the different terrains result in a variety of honeys, each with its own unique character.
In 2010, Bernard Magrez decided to install beehives in all of his Bordeaux vineyards, especially those producing the famous Grands Crus Classés (Château Pape Clément, Château La Tour Carnet, and Château Fombrauge). Recreating conditions in which bees can thrive is now imperative to protecting the species. They are an essential link in safeguarding biodiversity because they ensure the pollination of numerous crops and fruit trees. The hives now support a population of some 50,000 bees, a figure that has increased steadily over the years. In addition, the hives at Château Pape Clément have been fitted with electronic sensors. These assist beekeepers in monitoring their hives and gather data that researchers can analyze.
