Fay d'Homme Cot - Loire, France


The Winemaker
Winemaker Name: Vincent Caillé
Chateau: Le Fay d'Homme
Chateau Bio: Vincent started to work with his father in 1986 with 4 Ha and took over his dad’s parcels when he got retired in 1992. This leads to a 14 Ha domaine owned by both Vincent, his wife Sylvie and his two younger brothers who are participating from further in the continuity of the family story. He continued expanding the domaine by putting his hands on great parcels for sale, up to 38 Ha and then reduced it down to 26 by selling the least interesting ones.
