Purchased in 1970 by Aime Guibert, the 30-hectare Mas de Daumas Gassac was originally intended as a holiday retreat. However, a visiting oenologist, Henri Enjalbert identified many similarities between the soils of the estate and those of certain great estates of the Medoc.
This, combined with the estate's unique micro-climate, persuaded M.Guibert to begin planting vines in 1971, the first wines being released in 1978. Made according to organic principles, the wines are now 'cult classics'.
