2016: the Winery celebrates its 80th Anniversary

How far we have come since then!  Gabriel was born in the typical village of Séguret, near Gigondas, where his father was a humble farmer. He met Juliette Chauvet in 1929. It was love at first sight! They got married and settled on the familial farm of Juliette, in Gigondas...

In 1936, they founded the Gabriel Meffre Winery and developed their activity of wine merchant. Success came quickly and they started to invest in vineyards in the Rhône Valley & Provence that are still among the best of their appellations nowadays, 
80 years later, we are happy to recall this outstanding professional career. Today, the Winery is proud of its heritage and continues the work done by the founder through it strong values: passion, work, innovation and sharing.

According to Hugues Meffre, grandson of Gabriel and partner to our Winery, "the Gabriel Meffre Winery is one of the most successful businesses in the Rhône Valley". It has a very high-performance production tool and has developed its sales throughout France and abroad in an exemplary way. Our family never could have done this. This is why Gabriel Meffre's children and grandchildren chose to sell the company en 1990. We chose to devote ourselves to managing our vineyards and are very happy with the evolution of the Winery."
