The history of the Maby family as wine
growers in the Tavel area started a couple of centuries ago. At that
time it was a family tradition to be shoemakers, but they also owned
some fields with mixed crops - also some vines. A century ago the family
was still shoemakers but they had 4-5 hectares of vines and produced
some wine in a small cellar, bottled and sold with the name "Clos
du Palai". Wine growing became more important and in the 1950ties the
Domaine Maby was created with the new name and the wines were produced
from 15 ha. During the following years the family company increased its
holdings. In 1996 a group of family members owned 120 ha. They then
decided to split up. The father of the owner today,
Roger Maby, by this split got 45 ha. and later he repurchased 15 ha. of
Lirac and Cotes du Rhone. Today the domain covers 60 ha. 21 ha of Tavel, 31
ha of Lirac, 5 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 3 ha of IGP.
Richard Maby took over the responsibility in 2005.
