Originally established in 1930, the 40 hectare estate of Domaine la Genestière was acquired by Jean-Claude Garcin in 1944. Since then, he has painstakingly worked to improve the property and increased its reputation in the region. The centerpiece of the domaine’s production is the Tavel Rosé “Cuvée Raphael”, fashioned from a blend of traditional Rhone varietals into a brilliant, flavorful rosé redolent of raspberries and roses. M. Garcin has also acquired additional vineyards over time, expanding from Tavel and Lirac production into a special project of producing varietal wines in the rocky garrigue terroir of the region, under the label Domaine St. Anthelme.
