#SITTRascalTakeover – France

Château de Gaure (782 miles from SITT)Pierre Fabre - owner

With only 782 miles from SITT, we’re now in our final country before we hit the UK. Starting in Languedoc for the French wines, we popped by Château de Gaure to visit winemaker Pierre Fabre. dragging him away from his canvas for a quick snap.

This winemaker not only has an eye for wine, but also for art. Pierre Fabre selects a colour for each vintage and paints his own labels. For the 2015 vintage which we are taking to SITT, he uses blue and gold.

This wine is organic, high altitude, aesthetically pleasing AND delicious!
