In Gascony we deserve its name, Joÿ is that of a place called the Revolution and not a marketing concept. Everything here is fresh, light and inspiring. The Gesslers take it on and claim it: they produce pleasure wines certified in High Environmental Value (HVE level 3) which are now recognised worldwide. What a punch! What aromas!Lire plus Learn more
Joÿ is not a marketing creation, it is the name of the locality of the domain that has been found in notarial writings dating back to the Revolution. The origin of this name probably dates back to the English presence in the region in the 14th century.
Our vineyard is located on hillsides in the heart of the Côtes de Gascogne vineyard, on the edge of the Landes forest. Our parcels dominate the canton of Grand Bas Armagnac and are mostly hilly.
Respect for the environment is essential for the Gesslers, and the Joÿ estate has been certified in High Environmental Value (HVE level 3) since early 2019. A certification that is essential today and that makes JOY a unique player in the protection of the environment!
The grass cover is preserved on all the vineyard plots, which favours the life of the fauna and flora, and helps to stabilise our sloping soils.
Humus is provided by the vine's natural grass (regularly ground to avoid competing with the vine in water) and by the vine'
Hedges and forests are of course preserved out of respect for nature.
Young and dynamic, Olivier, Vanessa, Gaël and Kévin Gessler are at the head of the family estate of Domaine de Joÿ, which produces world-renowned wines and armagnacs. The House's trademark: to produce fruity, refreshing and original wines that go well with all kinds of dishes. The origin of the name Joÿ probably dates back to the English presence in the region in the 14th century. The story begins in 1927, when Paul Gessler decided to leave his native Switzerland and settle in Gascony, in the Gers, a region depopulated by farmers. From generation to generation, the estate has grown. Today, the fourth generation is on the move with Vanessa, Gaël and Kévin Gessler. It brings new knowledge to perpetuate the company.
The winegrower's profession is the fruit of knowledge and passion for the terroir. Humility, modesty, team spirit, sharing, being welcoming and warm are the key words of the Gascony estate and culture. You are welcome at the Domaine! Saint Andrew is undoubtedly the symbol of Joÿ! First name of our grandfather André GESSLER (2nd generation) who is still a lover of the vine. This wine is produced from the Gros Manseng grape variety. This is Joÿ's flagship vintage! The marriage of our great Armagnacs with haute couture has enabled us to work in partnership with Paco Rabanne. This has given Joÿ even greater value to consumers.
Our philosophy: to produce fine and fruity wines and armagnacs and above all to make consumers HAPPY (Joÿ comes from the Gascon "lou joy" meaning "joy, joyful") !Joÿ wines differ from the others in their originality and atypicality in the Côtes de Gascogne appellation. The word Joÿ is a strong entity and is based on original names given to the plots (Pine, because there is a maritime pine tree; Banana, because the plot is in the shape of a banana; Wood, because the plot is in the middle of a wood, the Crane...), and other names given according to the place and the grape variety (Colombard de Bordes, Petit Manseng de Garras, Ugni-Blancs de Sauce paille...). What transports us is the diversity of the estates and wines, the novelties, the discovery of new wines from all over the world...
