famille fabre
FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT

The Fabre family – Famille Fabre – are passionate winemakers who have been perfecting their techniques and the foundations of their business for over fourteen generations.

The family and their vineyards have grown since 1605, while remaining true to their land. They now owns five chateaux in the Languedoc region of France.

Famille Fabre has great respect for the environment and for the integrity of their profession. They are committed to bringing out the best of their terroir through rigorous plot selection, and cultivation, together with the ageing and vinification techniques of the grapes.

THREE PILLARS FOR A HOUSE OF CHARACTER

1


RESPECT FOR
NATURE
THROUGH CONVICTION

Observation,
Understanding,
and Humility

Famille Fabre maintains an intimate and respectful relationship with nature. Since 1991 Louis Fabre has pioneered the conversion to organic grape farming, becoming one of the first Languedoc winemakers to go green. He continues to prioritise and develop eco-conscious farming and winemaking, exploring new methods and always looking for new solutions to the environmental problems we face. “Quality is not a state, it is a path.” This spirit of the “wine explorer” pushes us into the vineyards, and there, sowing and planting a culture of diversification.

KNOW-HOW
AND KNOW
TO THINK

Between Tradition
and Innovation

For generations Famille Fabre has cultivated an innate sense of invention and innovation. From André Fabre’s harvest ‘wagonnets’ to Louis Andrieu’s ‘colorimètre’ used to measure the colour of wine, an openness to new ideas has become the backbone of their commitment to quality. Each year presents a game with new rules. The freshly harvested grapes set the tone and the creative winemaker imagines new vintages; carbonic maceration, natural and sparkling wines… the possibilities are endless.

FAMILY
VALUES

Heritage and
Collectivity

A heart line more than a bloodline, Famille Fabre is made up of many talented individuals with a common ambition. They have built their family history upon the values of authenticity and generosity. From vine to bottle, from bud to grape, from must to wine, people everywhere are humble servants of a sometimes capricious but always generous Nature.
