Domain Gayda is the creation of Tim Ford and his partners, who together had a vision of making New World style wines, in the traditional sun soaked vineyards of southwest France. They have built a state of the art winery and restaurant, set amongst their vines, in a small village just outside Carcassone. The grapes are all grown bio-dynamically, hand-picked and then carefully matured in oak barrels, concrete eggs or steel tanks, as appropiate to each variety and style of wine being produced, to create award winning terroir-driven single varietals, and complex multi-layered blends.
