In 1975 Jean-Claude Bubola was able to buy the freehold of a property which his parents had previously been tenants of. Jean-Claude and his wife Régine replanted the vineyard over the next 25 years with varieties capable of producing good white and red wines. Along with this they invested money in new machinery and infrastructure for the winery.
The appellation “Sables Fauves” (Tawny Sands) refers to a special terroir in the east of the Landes where the soil is sandy and has been coloured by iron oxides. The Bubolas' aim is to produce a dry white wine and a fruity red which are characteristic of their region, and which they can offer at a very competitive price. This sandy terroir is not the easiest to cultivate, and is only lately acquiring a good reputation for wine, thanks to the experience and careful work of winemakers like Jean Claude Bubola.
