The first mention of the Chateau Favray dates back to 1602, when Françoise – Queen Margo’s maid of honor, the wife of King Henry IV married noble Francois de Reny / François de Reugny. When married, she received the title of Lady Favre / Dame de Favray. Her tombstone with the image is still kept in the church of the neighboring village. The eighteenth century shows that the wine business here flourished. Unfortunately, the arrival of the phylloxera in the late nineteenth century was marked by the destruction of the vineyards. In 1980, Quentin David decided to revive the former glory of the Chateau Favray. Vineyards are located on a hill with white limestone soil, it consists of very small stones that bring warmth to the vine throughout the vegetative season. Vines look at the valley of Noen. Cultivation of grapes is carried out within the framework of viticulture confirmed by the sign of Terra-Vitis (www.terravitis.com). Particular attention is paid to controlled yield and maturation conditions. Green harvesting and thinning of foliage is carried out depending on the crop year. All work in the vineyards is certified and confirmed by the BIO document. The cellar was built from 1984 to 2000, its architecture resembles the traditional buildings of the region, and the installation of modern equipment allowed to produce wine under ideal conditions. The press is located on the top floor, the wort gravity is sent for vinification to the lower floor, where a slow fermentation process takes place while controlling the thermoregulation system. Exposure to bottling continues on the sediment of 3-8 months. Depending on the harvest year, the exposure can be up to 18 months. All subsequent processes are subject to the main rule – minimal intervention, so that all the richness of the drink is preserved. Château Favray produces only one wine per year. Wine with pronounced flower aromas. The fruity taste is emphasized by the minerality in the aftertaste. Wine is usually consumed by young, but if properly stored, it is perfectly drunk after 5-10 years of storage.

Heribert Kerpen has been engaged in viticulture for 8 generations, for 250 years.
