The story goes...

A New World spirit has been breathed into this range of single varietal, high-tech wines that remain firmly rooted in their Languedoc homeland. Like a proverbial Janus, its two components face two ways: Syrah epitomises wines from the South, whilst Sauvignon thrives in the distant lands of New Zealand and the Loire Valley. This improbable confrontation of grape varieties and wine profiles symbolises Domaine Gayda’s origins and fusion of two worlds, Old and New.
