Within 40 years the Mas de Daumas Gassac wines have reached the rare status of “cult wine” that is only given to a few exceptional estates.
The first wines ever produced in the Gassac valley are said to date back to 780 A.D. when St. Benoit d’Aniane, one of Charlemagne’s counselors planted the original Gassac vineyard in this magical valley.
UNIQUE TERROIR & CLIMATE
50 ha (125 acres) of deep and well-drained soil, free of pesticides and chemicals. The grand crus come exclusively from a unique terroir similar to Burgundy. The Gassac valley has a cool microclimate influenced by several natural springs and the nearby hills and sea.
UNIQUE GRAPE VARIETIES
Museum of rare and ancient varieties, more than 40 different grape varieties from the world planted in the valley, and low yields. No chemical fertilizer or any other synthetic products at Daumas Gassac.
The estate has been farmed in a traditional and natural way for thousand of years before the Guibert family established the Grand Crus vineyard. With fifty-two small vineyard plots amongst 3,000 hectares (7,000 acres) of protected forest, the estate pursues the same philosophy based on respect for the land and preserving nature’s balance.
