VINEYARD

"The story of the Gabriel Meffre Winery began in 1936, when Gabriel and his wife, both passionate about wine, created their ‘Négociant-Vinificateur’ business in Gigondas. More than 80 years later, the family business has built on its strong foundations and has established its reputation as a leading Winery in the southern Rhone Valley. The Domaine du Bois des Dames has belonged to the Meffre family for 3 generations. This 100-hectare estate was named after the thick woods of green oak that once covered the land and which today is devoted entirely to vineyards. These woods belonged to the ladies» (Dames) who were part of a convent, Couvent de Prébayon, in the hills above Gigondas. Thus the name «Bois des Dames». In 1957, Gabriel Meffre with his son began to reconstitute the estate by buying the entirety of the dispersed parcels, an undertaking which lasted over 20 years. The vineyards' soil is a vast alluvial terrace overlaid with chalky pebbles dating from the quaternary period. They rest partly on blue clay from the Pliocene, partly on saffre sandstone, ensuring that moisture reaches the roots of the vines and enables them to continue growing during the summer drought. Méditerranean climate influenced by the Mistral wind."""
