46 years old and father of two children.
A native of Bordeaux’s Entre-Deux-Mers region, he comes from a family of winegrowers in Castelvieil.
Fabrice discovered his vocation at a very young age. His studies were perfectly adapted to his chosen field, which he went into with great enthusiasm, soon after receiving his diplomas.
Fabrice Bandiera obtained a BTS agricultural vocational training certificate in 1987, followed by an advanced BTS in 1991.
After working at the family property, he joined the Cazes and Axa Millésimes estates in 1992, and was involved in all aspects of vineyard and cellar work until 1993. This experience at such prestigious estates as Lynch-Bages and Pichon Baron instilled in him the virtues of rigour and professionalism. He was offered the job of technical director at a 45-hectare family estate in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux in 1994. His two years there were very positive, rounding out his winemaking expertise. He joined the team at Château des Laurets in 1996 as a cellar worker before being promoted to Technical Director in 2002. Fabrice Bandiera has helped the Edmond de Rothschild family’s estate wines go from strength to strength for over 20 years, upholding their traditional expertise.
