Winery


Winery Description

The Gallets, owners and winemakers of Domaine le Roc des Anges, have acquired in 2007 a tiny new Domaine, Les Terres de Fagayra, giving Marjorie’s husband, Stephane, a chance to utilize the special talents for Maury that he honed as winemaker while at nearby Mas Amiel. This little known appellation yields wines of great structure and flavour. These are fortified wines made in a similar style to Port. Their three cuvees are stunning. More than good fortified wines they also display freshness, brightness and mineral smokiness. To say that Stephane is off to a flying and successful start would be an understatement.
