The Bibey family has been in the Médoc for many generations. Having settled in Bégadan, Jean-Mathieu Bibey, Jérôme’s grandfather, began cultivating vines as a farmer.
In 1970, his son Yves bought his first plots of vines on the place called "Labadie", a name derived from a local legend relating to the existence of an ancient abbey on their lands. He married Adélaïde in 1973 and she promptly joined the operation. The vineyard expanded from 20 hectares in 1988 to more than 70 hectares today.
In 1999, their son Jérôme took over the estate and implemented a strong environmental approach. He combined sustainable cultivation and practices aimed limiting the footprint of the activity of winemaking on our planet.
