CHÂTEAU TOUR D’HORABLE

I joined the family estate in 2008, founding the company Vignobles Faytout to perpetuate the know-how built up by my family over five generations. Château Tour d’Horable belonged to my grandfather, who was born in a family of coopers (French barrel manufacturers). But the family tree doesn’t end there: the parents of some of my employees worked with my grandparents. A true family business! The wines we craft together are expressive and authentic, just like our personality and our soils.
