Our "Gabriel" collection is named after the illustrious founder of the winery, Gabriel Meffre. Very early on he selected certain grape varieties with the aim of producing exciting and flavourful wines.  It is to celebrate this adventurous and visionary spirit that we created this uniquely retro cuvée in his honour.

Winemaking: 

The grapes are selected and harvested at optimum ripeness to preserve the rich varietal character. They are then de-stemmed and crushed and the juice fermented at controlled temperature. The wine is matured several months in tank before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

A brilliant, dark-red colour with a rich and spicy nose. This Merlot will seduce you with its blackberry and plum flavours and long, generous finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Perfect match for BBQ, with hamburgers, lasagne and much more! Serve within 2 years.

1929 – The encounter: As he rounded a bend in the road, Gabriel came across a damsel in distress named Juliette, who would later become his wife. The story goes that she had borrowed her father’s car without telling him, and that it had broken down. Gabriel offered to help and that’s where it all began…

 

1936 – The creation of the winery: For some years already, Gabriel had been buying vineyards in the Rhône Valley and Provence but it was in this precise year that he decided to found his Winery.

 

1948 – The winery takes off: Thanks to his passion, dedication, and perseverance, Gabriel successfully establishes the reputation of his wines and his Winery in France and then in the rest of the world.
