Description

Herv√© Joyaux Fabre, owner and director of Fabre Montmayou, was born in Bordeaux, France to a family of wine negociants. When Herve Joyaux Fabre arrived in Argentina in the early 90’s looking for opportunities to invest in vineyards and start a winery, he was impressed by the potential for Malbec in Mendoza. Within months he purchased the first of several old vine, high elevation vineyard sites under his control – an impeccable 37 acre spread in Vistalba planted with original rootstock Malbec vines in 1908. A pioneering Patagonian winery was constructed in the Rio Negro region ten years later. At present the family owns 217 acres of vineyard land in Mendoza (Vistalba, Compuertas, Tupungato) and 122 acres in Patagonia (Allen, General Roca). All wines are estate grown, farmed using traditional methods without the use of herbicides and pesticides, and fermented with native yeasts.
