Domaine du Gour de Chaulé was established at the beginning of the last century where it was split between the production of olives and vines. As the years progressed it became more focussed on winemaking and from 1970 Rolande, Stephanie’s grandmother, successfully implemented the commercialisation of wine bottled at the estate.
In 1985 her daughter Aline, developed and modernised the estate introducing a controlled, minimal intervention, form of agriculture, Lutte Raisonnée (respectful to the environment), working alongside a specialist agricultural engineer, effective since 2002, as part of an HACCP move towards quality.Today it’s Stephanie’s turn to hold the torch for these women who have already given so much to the Estate.
The estate has 10 hectares planted predominantly with Grenache. The rest of the vineyards are planted with Syrah, Mourvedre and a little Cinsault for making rosé.
