Pont de Gassac is produced by the Guibert family of Mas de Daumas Gassac. It is named after the small bridge that crosses the tiny Gassac River at the winery.
Mas de Daumas Gassac is considered the “Grand Cru of the Languedoc”. Within the portfolio of wines there are the estate wines under the Mas de Daumas Gassac brand, the midrange Pont de Gassac line of red and white blends, and the Moulin de Gassac wines that are made at a local cooperative under the direction of Samuel Guibert.
We visited the estate in 2014 to find out how they were producing such magnificent wines. The land is special, as the vineyards sit among forests, and paths connect the vineyards through the trees. All the red grapes, save Cabernet Sauvignon, are harvested and co-fermented, as are the whites. The product speaks for itself!
