About Laborie Wines
In the seventeenth century, the Tailleferts, a prosperous family from the district of La Bri acquired Laborie, the Farm Laborie was granted to French Huguenot, Isaac Taillefert , in 1691.
Already the owner of the neighbouring Picardie, Taillefert placed Laborie in his son Jean’s name. Together, they set about clearing the bush and planting vines, and within seven years, were producing a drinkable wine.
With their knowledge of French viticultural techniques, the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production that is evident, over three hundred years later, in Laborie’s wines of distinction.
The Laborie wine range which includes still wines, dessert wine as well as Method Cap Classique, epitomises winemaker Kobus van der Merwe’s passion to craft wines of great quality. We have the ability to source some of the finest grapes from the region which enables him to produce wines that are bursting with flavour yet keeping French elegance and style.
