A STORY OF TERROIRS
Our winery is the story of men and women who, for four generations, have been capturing and revealing the typical character of the various terroirs from which our wines are composed.
Each terroir, from the plain to the hills, tells you our story, through each and every one of our wines…
The Cave de Fleurie is the combination of a land, made up of hardy yet bounteous hillsides, and people of similar character. The land gives the Gamay grape everything it needs to thrive; while the wine growers bring out the best of this unique grape variety, with their nimble, expert hands. The bounteous nature of both the land and the people does the rest…
A VARIETY OF TERROIRS
Although the Cave de Fleurie also produces white wines from the Chardonnay, our favourite grape is, of course, the Gamay. This demanding varietal finds itself at home here, in our diverse soils, rich in schist, granite and volcanic rock, on the sunny hillsides from which it draws its daily nourishment. « Les Garants », « La Madone », « La Chapelle des Bois », « Les Moriers », « Montgenas »… are some of the lieux-dit or climats (i.e. specific vineyard areas) where we grow the grapes for our subtle, nuanced wines.
