Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere is a prestigious wine estate founded in the 17th century in the Bordeaux region. Located south of the medieval city of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere has been under the direction of Stephen von Neipperg since 1983. A member of a German family involved in viticulture for almost 8 centuries, Stephen von Neipperg manages the Chateau Canon-La-Gaffeliere with great passion and talent, through a resolutely modern approach to viticulture.
