Fabre Montmayou Luján de Cuyo
About Fabre Montmayou
Fabre Montmayou was founded in the early 1990’s by owner and winermaker Hervé Joyaux Fabre. When Hervé moved to Argentina from Bordeaux in the early 1990s and he was one of the first foreigners to recognise the potential of Argentina. As a true visionary, he bought very old Malbec vineyards, planted in 1908, and built the Fabre Montmayou winery with real boutique style and essence.
The first winery was built in Vistalba – Lujan de Cuyo, 18 Km North of Mendoza city at 3800 feet elevation (1,150 meters of altitude), and is surrounded by the first 15 hectares / 37 acres of Malbec vineyards that Bodegas Fabre S.A bought.
The Fabre Montmayou other winery is located in the Rio Negro Valley in Patagonia at 39º of latitude South, the most southerly vine growing region of America. These wines from the extremity of the world benefit from a very unique personality thanks to the soil of the desert where the sunny days and cold austral nights provide a very harmonic balance. There, the magic of the Terroir confers unique aromas, flavors and structure.
Hervé’s style of winemaking combines Argentina’s purity of fruit and clear varietal expression with the elegance and complexity which is the hallmark of his classical background. Underpinning all of this is Hervé’s unshakeable belief in the local terroirs, and his determination that all his wines should express these terroirs as elegantly as possible. Fabre Montmayou has won international critical acclaim and is widely recognized as one of Argentina’s premium wine brands.
