Back in the 19th century, Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere started out life with two separate names - Canon Boitard and La Gaffeliere-Boitard. In time, the double naming was made easier for consumers, combining the names, which created the moniker we know today as Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere.
Count Joseph Hubert von Neipperg purchased Canon La Gaffeliere in 1971. The von Neipperg family remain the owners today.
The vineyards are farmed using 100% organic methods. To help with that process, only organic compost, from their own making that is naturally low in nitrogen is used, and even then, that is always in tiny amounts.
