Two resounding names, a global leader in the wine industry
It all started in 1787 for Fauvarque, followed shortly afterwards by Cuvelier in 1804. For 230 years, Cuvelier & Fauvarque have offered the North of France exceptional wines.

Since then, Cuvelier & Fauvarque is based in Haubourdin, close to Lille. It is now the north biggest wine dealer, renowned for its expertise, its services provided and its exquisite wines.
