Guillaume Fabre

Guillaume Fabre's family has been making wine for several generations in France. Fabre had worked with his father in the vineyards and cellar from the time he was a child.

Fabre pursued a major in winemaking, enology and vineyard management at the Lycée Charlemagne in Carcassonne, graduating in 2001. He found a job at an estate, but when tragedy struck the owner's family, a 21-year-old Fabre took over. After two years, Fabre had the property running smoothly, and the family re-assumed control.

Through connections in Bordeaux, Fabre met and interned with Stephan Asseo, the winemaker who had received Robert Parker's attention with his French-styled wines coming from L'Aventure, the Paso winery he founded in 1997.

The internship, which typically lasted three months for others, went on for four years for Fabre, who then became assistant winemaker. He began making his wine right away, starting with a site just behind L'Aventure called Russell Family Vineyards.

Fabre's wife Solène joined him in Paso shortly after, and their winery, Clos Solène, is now named after an imaginary vineyard she played in as a child in Bordeaux. It was launched in 2007.
