Additional information: A charming Organic producer, Famille Fabre is a little gem, built around the strength of family and a passion for winemaking. Passed down through generations, the 2019 vintage marked the return to the family estate and a pledge to care for the planet in their endeavours.
The Chateau de Luc, anchored in the heritage of Cathare, is the home of the Fabre family (Louis, Claire, and their children) and the central office for their multiple wineries. An extraordinary underground cellar favours optimum winemaking.
Chateau de Luc welcomes visitors to taste their vintages in the old stables which have been converted to a tasting cellar. The vineyards are situated on the rocky terraces of the Orbieu river and the windy foothills of Mount Alaric. This terroir yields concentrated and well balanced wines. The underground cellars dating back to the fourteenth century are a unique testimony to history.
Each bottle from the Famille Fabre is an invitation to discover our terroir and our mythical cellar. The strong Cers (North-west wind) blows down from the garrigue and infuses the wines with aromas of juniper and rosemary.
