About the Wine, Winemaker, & Winemaking Process
In 1971, ethnologist and Ireland specialist Véronique Guibert de la Vaissière and her husband Aimé, a tanner and glove manufacturer in Millau, fell in love with an old, abandoned farmhouse in the unspoilt rural setting of the Gassac valley near the ancient abbey of Aniane. Their first vintage - a red blend - was bottled in 1980.
For nearly five decades, the Guibert family has watched over and tended to the vines with unfailing dedication. The story began with Véronique and Aimé, and continues today with the second generation at the helm!
The 2021 Moulin de Gassac 'Guilhem' blanc is fresh, lively and full of crisp citrus notes and clean, refreshing minerality on the finish. A total crowd pleaser, at an incredible value. Great match for fish with sauces, shellfish and summer salads.
