The Great Name of Languedoc
The great vintages of Daumas Gassac come exclusively from the terroirs of the Gassac valley. Its vineyard, located in the heart of Hérault, dates back to 780, under the leadership of Saint Benoit d´Aniane.
Véronique and Aimé Guibert, whose activities were not originally linked to wine, acquired this old Mas in 1970. A friend of the family, Professor Henry Enjalbert, a geologist specializing in vineyards, detects at Mas de Daumas Gassac an incredible terroir to develop a very great wine.
The Guilbert family then decided to get into the business by planting vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Syrah and other rare varieties.
In 1978, a first vintage was born, thanks to the advice of the famous oenologist Emile Peynaud. Very quickly, the wines acquire great renown. The estate currently has 50 hectares of vines, with more than 1,500 hectares of scrubland. Over thirty varieties have been planted since the start.
Often rewarded, Daumas-Gassac is often called “The only grand cru du midi” and is part of the great wines of the world.
