The winery is located in the municipality of Entrechaux in the Département Vaucluse in the French wine-growing region Rhône. The traditional family has been growing wine since 1820. Maurice Gely started his own wine production in 1954, until then the grapes were delivered to a cooperative. Today the farm is run by his grandson Jean-Christophe Gely. The vineyards cover 30 hectares at the foot of Mont Ventoux. The white wine varieties Clairette, Grenache Blanc(Garnacha Blanca), Roussanne and Viognier are cultivated, as well as the red wine varieties Grenache Noir(Garnacha Tinta) and Syrah. For the top red wines, a maximum yield limit of 20 hl/ha applies. The product range includes various red wines, rosé wines and white wines AOC Côtes du Rhône and Ventoux, as well as IGP wines (country wines).
