Descended from a generation of Swiss wine growers who arrived in France in 1920 and from a line of wine makers from the Armagnac region, François Morel has ensured the expansion of the family estate for 10 years with his straightforward approach and his dynamism. Domaine Uby is now regarded as one of the most popular and successful estates in Gascony, albeit not really outside of France.
He expresses his passion through his wines: pleasing wines of quality, convivial wines for sharing which perfectly match the image of the wines and the region of Gascony.
A new winery was constructed in 2012 to assure the security and the development of the Estate. It was designed to ally expertise with technical skill, from wine making to the maturing process and on to the storage and packaging of the wines.
The grapes are harvested at night when fully mature, with harvesting protection. Skin maceration, inert pneumatic pressing (protected from oxygen), fermentation at low temperature, maturing on fine lees, blending and storing in thermo-regulated tanks.
The entire Uby vineyard has been certified ‘Viticulture Raisonnée Contrôlée’ for 10 years. Cereal crops on the estate, as well as the 12 hectares of vines. are grown organically.
