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.
Respect for the environment is essential for the Gesslers, so it is only natural that the Domaine de Joÿ is certified in High Environmental Value (HVE level 3) and has been since the beginning of 2019. A certification that is essential today and that makes JOY a unique player in the protection of the environment!
The Domaine de Joÿ is run by 4 young and dynamic members of the same family. We find Olivier, Vanessa, Gaël and Kévin Gessler, they produce wines and armagnacs that are world renowned. The hallmark of the House is simply 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 presence of English in the region in the 14th century. The story begins in 1927, when Paul Gessler decided to leave his native Switzerland and move to Gascony, in the Gers. At that time there were no farmers. Little by little the estate is expanding and today the fourth generation is taking over the torch.
Our philosophy: to produce fine and fruity wines and armagnacs and above all to make consumers HAPPY because yes Joÿ comes from the Gascon "lou joy" meaning "joy, joyful"!
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!
