Château de l'Aumérade
Côtes de Provence - France
In 1932, Henri Fabre fell in love with the Chateau del’Aumérade and bought the estate. He and his wife, Charlotte, were among the first bot- tlers and founders of Côtes de Provence wines. They overhauled the château and in 1955 were awarded the title of Cru Classé, which only 18 property owners in Provence can claim. Helped by their son, Louis Fabre, they expanded their wine sales and exports. In 1956, Charlotte Fabre designed a unique bottle, one of the first in Provence, taking inspiration from one of Emile Gallé’s pâtes de verre vases.
