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 harvested in the early morning when the temperature is cool and to ensure the grapes arrive fresh at the winery. The grapes are destemmed, crushed and pressed and the clear juice is drawn off. Fermentation takes place at low temperature (13°-15°C) to preserve the fine and delicate aromas. The wine is then aged in tank for several onths to harmonise and refine before being bottled.

Tasting notes: 

Pale gold colour with bright green reflections. The nose is dominated by fresh white flower and peach aromas and the palate will seduce you with its delicate apricot and mango flavours. A delicious wine to enjoy young.

Service & food pairing suggestions: 

Perfect match for aperitif, with monkfish in tajine... 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.
