Cuvelier & Fauvarque

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. Professional customers, restaurants and also consumers have always trust it. The year 1985 marked the merger of the two into one single company based in a 10,000 m² warehouse. 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.
