Situated southern slopes of Saint-Emilion plateau Château La Gaffelière started its history in the 4th century when Ausonius, a Roman poet, had a vineyard in the same spot.
In 1969, Comte Léo de Malet Roquefort, the owner of the chateau discovered numerous mosaics relating to Gallo-Roman times. The family de Malet Roquefort has run the estate for more than 3 centuries and still live in the magnificent chateau.
The wines of Chateau Gaffeliere come from an exceptional terroir, a so-called “golden triangle”, the area between Chateau Pavie and Chateau Ausone, on limestone and siliceous soils.
Chateau La Gaffeliere is accessible on foot from the village of Saint Emilion.
From Monday to Sunday by appointment.
Drop-ins for tastings are accepted where availability permits.
