Gimel is educated as an oenolog (Diplôme
National d'Oenologue de Toulouse) and has worked
at different estates in Rhone. For years he was looking for a place to
start his own production of wine.
At the start he bought area covered 16,5 ha. 4 of them are covered
with fruit threes, forrest and lots of plants.
2007-2015 Gimel made his
wines in a rented room
Since 2016 Gimel has been
able to make his wines in a
refurbished basement, which was
established by the owner, a
contractor who had originally intended
to use the premises for machines,
but who for various reasons he gave up using the buildings
himself and today (2019) Gimel has not only vineyards but also his
own cellar and a nice house for living with tasting room and
The work in the vines are strictly organic.
After moving to the new cellar Gimel has bought a parcel just
nearby, so the vineyards are now covering 19 ha.
