Domaine de Joy is a family estate located in Panjas, Gascony. Joy is best known for its know-how handed down from generation to generation, especially in the production of white wine Joy.
It all began at the beginning of the century when the Gessler family fell under the spell of the Armagnac country. Paul and Marguerite Gessler then decided to settle at the Domaine de Joÿ but it was the following generations who worked to value the family vineyard and to measure all its richness. Gradually, the Joy vineyard has been transformed to grow white grape varieties typical of this region and thus produce the dry, medium dry or sweet Joy wine that we now know. Currently Vanessa and Kévin Gessler, the 4th generation of winemakers, perpetuate the family tradition.
Domaine de Joy produces several ranges in IGP Côtes de Gascogne including dry, medium dry and sweet white wines, sparkling wines and rosé and red wines. There is also a production of Floc de Gascogne and Bas-Armagnac at Domaine Joy, elaborated with Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Bacco. The approach of the Gessler family is above all to rely on the quality of its soil to produce generous and aromatic Joy wine as well as fruity and refined Bas-Armagnacs.
