Fiacre Taillet, winegrower in Merfy in 1485, was the first of a long line of family winegrowers in Merfy.
Another Fiacre Taillet, born in 1700, was an enlightened winemaker who wrote extensive memoirs about his life and his work, as well as the economic, political and cultural environment of the region in the early 18th century. Following this, first Laurent, then Antoine Taillet continued to write logs, passing the family tradition on from father to son, one generation to the next. Today, Alexandre Chartogne-Taillet maintains written logs of his own, as his parents Philippe and Elisabeth did before him.
Since 2006, Alexandre has been dedicated to the family's work, seeking to share with you the wines of the village of Merfy.
