Show 583, June 22, 2024: Benom Wines, Paso Robles with Co-Proprietor Arnaud Fabre

Arnaud Fabre of Benom Wines

“They are brothers, they are French, and for them making wine at their BENOM in Paso Robles is a heritage.”

Arnaud & Guillaume Fabre moved to California for love. For Guillaume, it was his passion for winemaking and farming without limits that brought him to Paso Robles.

This love led him to one of the most prestigious Paso Robles wineries, L’Aventure, and eventually to start his own winery, Clos Solène.”

“Arnaud’s story is much more like that of a movie scene. His move to California was to follow the love of his life, Chloe. This is how the two brothers -Les Deux Frères Fabre- ended up in Paso Robles.”

“As a tribute to the six-generation family legacy in the Languedoc-Roussillon and Bordeaux regions, BENOM harmoniously combines the freedom of winemaking in Paso Robles with the innate talent of the Fabre bloodline.”

“In September of 2023, the Fabre brothers accomplished their goal of acquiring an estate in York Mountain AVA.

This purchase fulfills Arnaud and Guillaume’s long-term vision of expanding the BENOM brand.”

“Every bottle of BENOM embodies the Fabre brothers’ commitment to their French heritage and passion for Paso Robles. Their approach to winemaking is distinguished by the use of traditional Old World techniques and sustainable practices, incorporating the fruit and creative freedom of Paso Robles.”

“BENOM also sources fruit from the Adelaida and Willow Creek districts on the west side of Paso Robles as well as Edna Valley, Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara. Sourcing fruit allows BENOM a unique opportunity to create wine from a multitude of soil types and sub-climates.”

There is also a Family connection with the Michelin recognized, top-rated restaurant in Paso Robles, Les Petites Canailles.

Arnaud Fabre joins us to uncork all that is BENOM wines.
