Our history

Located south at the foot of the medieval village of Saint-Emilion slope, Château Canon La Gaffelière’s unusual terroir consists of clay-limestone and sandy-clay soil that is receptive to the sun’s warmth. The vineyard therefore has an atypical breakdown of grape varieties for the appellation: 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Entitled to organic certification since the 2014 vintage, this very “Cabernet” terroir gives Château Canon La Gaffelière a complex character.   Distinguished, elegant, fruity and spicy, with a very mineral flavour, the wine has an unquestionably unique personality.
Looking for a professional welcome, tailored to your interest or your technical knowledge?
Let’s come and visit us…More than a tour, an unique “terroir” experience !

It would have been nice to have tasted a bit more of a range of wines. It also would have been very nice to be able to purchase. We would have been willing to pay a small fee for more options.

We loved our experience touring and tasting! It gave the impression of a small, family owned vineyard but with such an impressive name.

The tour guide was excellent, taking time to explain details and showcase what this producer have to offer (including wines from the other vineyards owned by the family) There are no direct sales at the chateaux, however, I will be definitely keep on buying their wine in the US either through merchants or via auction.

It is kind of hard to find the Château, as the entrance sign is quite small.

Amelia was gracious and outstanding in her information. This was the highlight for my husband of our tours and of our wine tastings. He thought Canon was the best of all the wines we drank over two weeks.

We were very much satisfied with the guided tour and wine tasting. The guide was very friendly and we also learnt a lot. Though the tour provably took a bit more time than usual as I needed to translate for my family, she was very patient and kind. I can further recommend to visit the winery.

Wonderful tour! Had a very hard time finding the place as the sign was missing, however the tour guide was very patient and waited for us even though we were almost an hour late.

Visite dégustation

Although the chateau was difficult to find and we arrived late for our appointment, the guided tour was recommenced for our benefit and for this we are very thankful. Our guide was superb and cannot be faulted in any way. She was friendly, knowledgable, and passionate about the wines and made us feel very comfortable to ask questions. The tasting itself was not rushed and we had time to talk about the wine. The whole experience was very enjoyable and one of our lasting memories of our day in st Emilion. We thank you so very much!
