Domaine Gauby is just on the outskirts of the small village of Calce in the Roussillon, a village that is home to a handful of very talented winemakers. It is in northern Catalonia, in France, in the Vallée de l’Agly.
Domaine Gauby, with Gérard Gauby, was one of the pioneers for producing ambitious, high-quality wine in the Roussillon. Today the winery is run by Gérard and his son Lionel. They are also noteworthy for being a precursor in the area of the biocynamic movement in winemaking – using herbal infusions and composts instead of chemical treatments and synthetic fertilisers. This way of growing the vines tries to cultivate the grapes in as “natural” a way as possible. Much attention is spent on observing and tending the wines. Having a living soil and an extensive biodiversity is also important: many different plants and many insects and animals contribute to a stable growing environment for the vines.
The domaine now includes some 45 hectares of vineyards, mainly in the Côte de Roussillon appellation. Domaine Gauby makes both red and white wines. The reds are made from typical southern grapes: grenache, carignan, mourvèdre, syrah are the main ones. they also have some cabernet sauvignon. The white wines are made from e.g. grenache blanc, viognier and grenache gris. They have a relatively recent winery where they use a mix of traditional and modern vinification
