Jean Gallo has been passionate about wine and champagne for many years, working as a well known distributor on the French Riviera, specialising in Provence rosé wines; he naturally transmitted his love of wine to his son. Together they dreamt of acquiring a vineyard and the dream came true in 2013 when they purchased a small plot of land and created Domaine des Mapliers. The property is located in the heart of Provence Varoise, between Lorgues and Saint Antonin du Var. The vines are spread hillside, south facing, on a calcareous clay soil at an altitude of 300m, giving the fruit a natural acidity. All of Domaine des Mapliers is cultivated with total respect for nature. The soils are treated gently with mechanical weeding and ploughing. Only organic products are used for treating the vines, and use of pesticides is forbidden. Conversion to organics began in 2015. The vines are trellised on metal wire, the harvest is done by hand, and the wine is made in stainless steel thermo regulated tanks.
For distribution in the USA and Singapore only.
