chateau Famaey Chateau Famaey

The vineyard is made in total of 33 hectares of vines. Situated on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd terraces (river bank levels) of the Lot valley, our vines benefit from an exceptional terroir of clay and gravel soil with plenty of sunshine. The 1st terrace plots will produce our Vins de Pays IGP, whereas the plots situated in 2nd and 3rd terraces will give us the grapes to produce our AOP Cahors wines.

Here, the Malbec, a grape variety superbly adapted to our region, expresses all of its qualities.

Our years of experience and the obeservation of our soils have led us to vinify our plots and grapes-variety separately, in order to obtain the best possible results.

Our vines, aged 35 to 65 years, make this a fully matured vineyard. Permanent care and respect for nature are key to our cultivation techniques. No chemical fertilizers are allowed to pollute our soils, which instead are worked and de-weeded using traditional mechanical means.

The yields are very carefully controlled in order to produce a rich, honest and authentic grape. The best parcels of the vineyard are harvested manually, turning the vendange (grape harvest) into a traditional celebration.
