The founders of la Manufacture are lovers of “la Belle Ouvrage”, a traditional French concept of perfectly crafted work. They bring to their wines the same rigour and precision of traditional craftsmanship that are found in horology, haute couture, and porcelain making… It is this unique knowhow for which France has been famous for centuries all over the world. La Manufacture is commited to excellence and fineness of execution and it conveys a prestigious portrait of today’s France with yesterday’s values.

They make a point of selecting partners who share their values of excellence. They work hard to give the best of their Terroir and are thus happy that la Manufacture rewards their wine with a selective distribution worldwide.
