Domaine Gayda has a passion for the traditional cépages grown across the many diverse soils and climates of the winery’s vineyards situated throughout the Languedoc, giving “Provenance” to all our wines.

While the grapes are rooted in tradition, the winery itself is all about the new, with investments in all the latest equipment and technology.

The winery’s “quest towards an organic viticulture is driven by our respect for the natural environment and to offer a wine of outstanding quality.”

A note on Tim Ford:

Born in 1960 Tim Ford grew up in the south of England where his father had a small vineyard. After qualifying as a horticulturalist Tim spent nearly 20 years working on various Horticultural business throughout East Africa. In 2002 he met Anthony Record and Marc Kent from the famous Boekenshoutskloof Winery in Cape Town South Africa.

They all decided that the Languedoc was the place to be and after meeting Vincent Chansault, the winemaker who was working with Marc, Tim sold up all his business interests and moved with Vincent to the Languedoc to get started.

The first vintage was in 2004 and now on the 10 th vintage Domaine Gayda has become a bench mark for quality wines from the Languedoc.
