The story began with a Swiss family who fell in love with the land of Armagnac, in Gers, Gascony.  At the turn of the century, Paul and Marguerite Gessler moved to Joÿ. Contrary to what one might think, Joÿ is the name of the vineyard. Having inherited this love from their parents, André and Véronique Gessler, then their sons Olivier and Roland, became aware of the rich soils and favourable exposure of some of the parcels. They gradually abandoned polyculture in order to devote a large portion of the estate to vine-growing. They focused on their love of white grape varieties in particular. Then they embarked on a quality-oriented process to produce generous, modern and refined Côtes de Gascogne wines, as well as a carefully selected range of supple and fruity Bas-Armagnacs. Today, the 4th generation is at work in the form of Vanessa and Kévin Gessler, Olivier’s daughter and son, who keep their love for this terroir alive.
