A winemaker, a family
The De Cibiens family owns the Château de Cabriac since 1802; we can say that they know a lot about wine! The domain is very successful in Japan and in Canada; and we particularly appreciate when French winemakers are successful abroad!
The Domaine de Cabriac is located at the foot of the Mont Alaric, in the Corbières region. Its vineyards are already twenty years old: they start producing fewer grapes, but the wines produced are more concentrated and intense. Over the years, the vineyards developed their roots that now go deeper in the soils to find nutrients. Who said that getting old was bad?
