We warmely welcome you to the most ancient wine estate of St Emilion, as shown by the mosaics of the gallo roman villa discovered on spot (closed to the public).The Counts of Malet Roquefort take care of Chateau La Gaffeliere and live here for more than 3 centuries ; however the origin of family dates back to william the conqueror and the battle of Hastings.
1st Grand Cru Classé since 1959, our vineyards spread over 54 acres and cover the best terroir of St Emilion : clay and limestone soils on the hillside and south facing. When tasting, the result is a subtle blend of complexity, finesse and elegance with a nice ability of ageing.
During the tour, you will discover (part of ) our secrets... an amazing vat room with purple tanks, a square ageing cellar, a brand new tasting room.
Come and enjoy an authentic experience !
