Domaine de Nalys is in new hands.

Maison E. Guigal has acquired Domaine de Nalys in Southern Rhône.

Domaine de Nalys dates to the 17th century, making it one of the oldest estates in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

Domaine de Nalys is dedicated to producing red and white wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Most known for its whites, the domaine covers 50 hectares in three main sectors: Nalys, Sénéchal and the famous terroir of La Crau. It cultivates all 13 grapes authorised in the appellation.

The domaine was previously owned by Groupe des Assurances Mutuelles Agricole (Groupama), a French insurance group. Before that, it was owned by Doctor Dufays until 1975,

No fee was disclosed, but according to some experts, the price likely reached between €40 million and €45 million.

Maison E. Guigal would have had to submit a far higher bid than its competitors to win the deal. Transactions in Châteauneuf-du-Pape are very rare.

‘Our family has been buying and ageing wines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape since 1946,’ Marcel Guigal told, showing his family’s excellent knowledge of Châteauneuf’s terroirs.

‘It’s a “coup de coeur”,’ said Philippe Guigal. ‘Our family is very proud to join Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s appellation, and we look forward to getting to work.’
