Gerbelle Didier Winery - L'Atoueyo
The Didier Gerbelle winery was officially founded in 2006 as a continuation of the family traditions which have their roots at the beginning of the 20th century. Didier, who graduated in oenology in 2006 from the glorious oenological school of Alba, took over the company run first by his paternal grandparents and then by his parents, and embarked on his own along the path of winemaking.
The company has about 2.8 hectares of vineyards and produces grapes that are almost in their entirety the company’s own grapes. The vineyards are located in the municipalities of Aymavilles and Villeneuve. The main vines cultivated are Petit Rouge, Cornalin (Broblanc biotype), Premetta and red-berried Fumin (authoctonous); Pinot Grigio and Gewurztraminer with white-berried grapes.
The vines are grown using the espalier systemby adopting the simple Guyot system and grown on poor and stony soils. Production is very limited and is around 15.000 bottles per year. All of the stages of production, from processing the vineyard to bottling, including subsequent marketing, are followed directly by the owner.
In 2019 Didier Gerbelle acquired the company L’Atoueyo also located in the municipality of Aymavilles, making it possible to increase and diversify the bottles produced.
