Yvon Mau

Since its creation in 1897, four generations have succeeded in building Yvon Mau, the renowned family-run business. Our story is based on a deep commitment to the culture of winegrowing in Bordeaux. Yvon Mau is now active in all aspects of the wine industry: winegrowing, creating brand vintages, and trading in châteaux and Bordeaux Grands Crus Classés.

In 2001 Yvon Mau merged with the Freixenet Group, the largest sparkling wine producer in the world and also a worldwide producer of fine wines. Freixenet is a family-run business that carries a long-term vision, the financial strength necessary for our profession, its wine expertise and a remarkable international presence.

With €110 million in turnover and a strong international presence, Yvon Mau is now a key player in the wine sector.

It was natural that we would give strong support for the creation of La Cité du Vin, contributing to the knowledge and cultural influence of wine with a wide audience of knowledgeable wine lovers and beginners.
