Domaine Saint-Galet traces its origins back to the early 20th Century when the owner’s grandparents worked the vineyards within an exceptional terroir. In 1936, the appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape was created to showcase this much-admired wine of the Southern Rhone region. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape of Domaine Saint-Galet is produced by the world-famous winemaker, Eric Bonnet. Eric is a co-owner with his father of La Bastide Saint Dominique.
