"When our father Paul and our mother Marie-José left the southern Mediterranean shores – on which our family had been growing wine for four generations – for another very different coast, that of the Atlantic, home to the Bordeaux wine region, they were armed only with their courage and their profound faith in human values.
These same noble values are essential for the growing of quality wines.
By his perseverance, Paul Gonfrier managed to stay the course and embark upon a great adventure: the creation of a family-owned company.
As a tribute to this remarkable journey, we have adopted the compass rose as our estate's emblem. It symbolizes our deep-rooted values :
The compass rose is also a nod to the marine world, which has ever fascinated our family and whose values we share. This emblem also represents our openness to the outside world, allowing us to draw new inspirations from abroad and ensuring our international growth.
The two of us, Philippe and Eric Gonfrier, promise our clients and our partners that the Gonfrier estate will keep this course, both today and over the coming generations."
