The story of Mas de Daumas Gassac begins in the early 1970’s when Véronique and Aimé Guibert discovered an abandoned farmhouse in the serene Gassac valley. Following the guidance of geologist Professor Henri Enjalbert, they planted 17,000 non-cloned Cabernet-Sauvignon grafts sourced from elite Bordeaux properties the following year. They built an underground cellar, strategically placed over the cold spring water from the river Gassac. Renowned oenologist Emile Peynaud, known for his association with Châteaux Margaux and Haut-Brion, provided valuable winemaking advice for their inaugural vintage.

By 1982, their wines began earning accolades with Gault&Millau dubbing them ‘Languedoc’s Château Lafite’ for the exceptional quality and distinctiveness of their reds. Today, the estate is run by Véronique and Aimé’s four sons – Samuel, Gaël, Roman, and Basile. Since 2009, this dynamic quartet has taken the reins of estate management, carrying forward their father’s innovative legacy and embracing a focus on elegance and freshness.
