Fruit of the Sun and Earth

Our La Châsse name is rooted deep in local history. During the 14th Century (1309 to 1378 to be precise) a succession of seven Pontiffs resided in Avignon, close to the beautiful village of Gigondas, home to Maison Gabriel Meffre makers of La Châsse. It was a time of conflict and discord when the French Kings had considerable influence over the Papacy, something that was resented by other rulers across Europe. Treasures of the Avignon Pontiffs were stored in a reliquary. This historic chest is referred to in French as a Châsse, hence the name La Châsse was chosen by Rhône Valley producer Gabriel Meffre, as a tribute to the rich and unique history of the region.

La Châsse is instantly recognizable thanks to its unique bottle which proudly displays the moulded crest bearing the Latin words ‘Solis Terraeque Vinum Fructus’, meaning literally: Wine, Fruit of Sun and Earth.
