Our family is established in Vaucluse, and grows vines in the Southern Rhône since five generations.

At the beginning of the XXth century, our great grand-father Auguste, who was honnoured with a gold medal at the general agricultural competiton in Paris in 1900... grew a nearly 10 Ha vineyard and several olive trees on the foothills of the delicious village of Gigondas, once called Jocunditas, which means "Joy and Glee".

His daughter, Juliette, got married with Gabriel Meffre. They started to discover the virgin lands around, cutting trees to plant vines; this is the signification of our current logo, decorating our bottles: an olive tree with grapes.

Gabriel and Juliette Meffre, as true visionaries, developped thanks to their huge work all their estates to become one of the major actors of the Southern Rhône, on the prestigious appellations as Châteauneuf du pape and Gigondas, et moreover on the Côtes du Rhône and Provence.

 

In 1987, their daughter Sylvette Brechet started to manage those estates, quickly joined by his son Laurent in 1990, and later by Julien in 2006.

Today, each estate is led by a Brechet, to set up diary work, and to provide a necessary presence.
