History

The Family MAYARD, a Chateauneuf-du-Pape native, already owned a property at the time of Napoléon III.

1st generation, Barthélémy MAYARD, acquires plots after parcels and exploits a vineyard of Napoleon III.

The 2nd generation, Lucien MAYARD, undertakes to grow vines on the lands inherited from his father.

The 3rd generation, Marius MAYARD and Fernand MAYARD. Fernand, brother of Marius and uncle of Roger, built the winery in 1929.

The 4th generation, Roger MAYARD, married to Alice MERLE, owned some additionnal lands, starts the bottling and develops commercialization.

The 5th generation, in 1976, when Jean-Luc MAYARD, the son, takes the succession "Domaine Roger MAYARD" becomes "Domaine Roger MAYARD & Fils".

When his father Roger MAYARD retires, the "Domaine" is then called : "Domaine Mayard Jean-Luc".

In 1990 the Domaine becomes "Domaine du Galet des Pape". It symbolises the prestigious synthesis of our vineyard, spread with big rolled pebbles.

The 6th generation, Blandine MAYARD, after seven years of studies and work experiences about the different stapes of the vineyard and the wine, installs to the Domaine in 2012 !
