Son of a parking lot entrepreneur in Washington DC, Alex Gambal came to Burgundy to work with wine broker Becky Wasserman and then stayed on to develop his own négociant company, now well established just outside the walls of Beaune. Slightly more white wines than red are produced. From 1999 to 2009 the wines were made by Fabrice Laronze who has since left to develop a domaine of his own in Auxey-Duresses. Maison Gambal owns 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) of vineyards which covers 25-30% of their grape needs the rest are purchased. The holdings are located in the Volnay wine appelation (for their Bourgogne Pinot Noir amd Bourgogne Chardonnay) and in Puligny Montrachet and Chassagne Montrachet (1er Cru La Maltroie).
