CAHORS - FRANCE

vin de lumière

Latis is the Celtic word for daylight, which is a reference to both the region's strong Celtic heritage and the very special daylight in Cahors. This light is soft and golden and gives a sensation of peace and well-being. Latis is an homage to the Celtic population that lived in the area 2,000 years ago and had very strong bond with nature and the beautiful local terroir.

OUR STORY

Winemaker Hervé Joyaux Fabre left the south of west France over 30 years ago to embark on a journey which took him to South America where has been producing award-winning Malbec ever since. When his childhood friend and local boy Pierre Montmayou asked him to join him on a new project in Cahors, he had no hesitation to accept this new challenge. Hervé has been a major driving force behind the rise and success of Argentine Malbec with internationally acclaimed wines such as Viñalba. He has returned to his homeland for a new venture which will bring to life the wines that inspired him on his winemaking journey. Hervé and his wife Diane recently acquired Les Vignobles St Didier Parnac from the Rigal family, a beautiful property set on the banks of the river Lot near the picturesque town of Cahors.
