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.

Grape Varieties: 

Blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes.

Winemaking: 

Blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes. The grapes are harvested in the early morning hours, when the temperature is cool and to ensure they arrive fresh at the winery. They are then de-stemmed and crushed before spending several hours macerating on the skins at low temperature to acquire the delicate pink hue. The clear juice is drawn off and fermented at around 12° to 14°. A brief 3-month maturation takes place in tank before bottling.

Tasting notes: 

Lovely pale pink colour with a nose of fresh red fruits and delicate English candy. This rosé will seduce you with its rasberry and pink grapefruit flavours and fun, lively finish.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Perfect match during a BBQ, with cold cuts... 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.
