La Barre

The Picard family vineyard in La Barre, France

La Barre was a village in northeastern France on Earth.

On 13 July 2305, Jean-Luc Picard was born in La Barre. (TNG: "Conundrum") His brother Robert Picard lived there together with his wife and son. In 2371, Robert, with his son René, were killed when they burned to death by fire. (TNG: "Family", "Chain of Command, Part I"; Star Trek Generations)

In 2367, Jean-Luc returned home for the first time in twenty years, leading the mayor to want to organize a parade and present Picard with the keys to the city. (TNG: "Family")

Several places called La Barre exist in France. Some materials created for the Picard family album implied that Chateau Picard was a Bordeaux wine and in fact certified as coming from the Bordeaux region. But the bottles seen in the teaser trailer for Star Trek: Picard are Bourgogne.
According to the script for "Chain of Command, Part I", the pronunciation for La Barre was "la BAR".
