Domaine de Gavaisson

Gavaisson takes its name from the Greek: guè (land) and baisson (arrived), so it can be translated as the arrival in the promised land. Established in the Var for twenty years, Domaine de Gavaisson is renowned for its production of great white wines Côtes de Provence.


Domaine Gavaisson is located in Lorgues, in the Var department. In the 90’s, Gerda Than fell in love with this still preserved place in Provence and became the owner. With the help of Emmanuel Geler, who is in charge of the commercial part and the production of olive oil, Gerda Than decides to preserve the surrounding nature and to stand out from the crowd by dedicating her production only to white wines of Provence. The 4 hectares of the wine estate are then uprooted and replanted with Semillon and Rolle, in order to produce Gavaisson wines that are round in the mouth, expressive and characterized by notes of pear and citrus.

The Gavaisson vineyard is now twenty years old and the plots of land are planted on stony, limestone and clay soils that are established in terraces. The vineyards and olive trees of the property are cultivated in organic agriculture and the principles of biodynamics are also practiced. In the cellar, part of the wine making process takes place in stainless steel tanks while the other part takes place in new oak barrels. An ovoid cement tank is also used. The ageing takes place in vats or in other barrels depending on the vintage and the cuvée of Domaine de Gavaisson.


Domaine Gavaisson is committed to excellence and to taking its terroir into account. We find racy, fine and powerful wines. The Inspiration vintage shines by its balance between freshness and roundness. It is already considered as a great white wine of Provence and can be kept for a few years or enjoyed in its youth. Emotion is Gavaisson’s great vintage, its complexity and intensity leave no one indifferent. We feel the purity of the fruit and the aromatic power of this one, it is a gastronomic white wine which will need a few years of guard to reach its full maturity.
