Octave Maury, tous les vins du Sud-Ouest!
Dear friends and French lovers, help us make you happy with our wines from the South-West : Cahors, Gaillac, Bergerac, Monbazillac...
Octave Maury, tous les vins du Sud-Ouest!
LAST MINUTE: Because of lockdown, we have to slightly revise our plan, for those of you who wish to put one of our counterparts under the tree, we will send you a great gift card! The bottles will arrive in January to celebrate 2021 as it should be :-)
IN 30 SECONDS :
Octave Maury is a collective of winegrowers from the different appellations of the South-West grouped under the same banner to promote the wines of the region. Octave Maury's ambition is to become the standard bearer for the wines of the South-West. We need your help to make them known throughout the world!
The objective of this fundraising campaign is to make our wines known to as many of you as possible, and to finance our development in France and internationally.
WHY THIS BRAND?
Our wines from the South-West of France are much less well known than our gastronomy, which has travelled around the world thanks to the many starred chefs from the region. However, the South-West has many assets to seduce: more than 40 appellations (AOP & IGP) which abound in grape varieties, of which more than 120 are specific to the region! In short, it's enough to stimulate your taste buds!
Convinced of the extraordinary potential of the region, we have decided to give back a place of choice to the wines of the South-West, a place in the hearts of wine lovers.
For lovers of history, the Octave Maury House is a former wine and brandy merchant house of the South-West, founded in the 19th century and which we have revived for the occasion.
THE SOUTH-WEST :
It's rugby, chistera, férias, friends meetings. It is the duck confit, the foie gras, the truffles, a land of gastronomy that makes you dream. It is also, Gaillac, Madiran, Cahors, Monbazillac, wines which know how to reveal this generous and authentic gastronomy.
For all this, the South-West is an art of living, a promise of conviviality.
Be curious, take the time to discover these unique wines, all in generosity and finesse. From fruity reds to full-bodied wines for laying down, from dry whites to tasty sweet and syrupy wines, the range of tastes offered by the wines of the South-West is as vast as it is attractive.
We have imagined a collection of 17 wine references from the main appellations of the region:
- Bergerac & Monbazillac
- Fronton & Gaillac
- Madiran & Pacherenc du Vic Bilh
They are grouped in a range of 3 easily identifiable vintages:
- La Balade: a collection of the terroirs of the South-West, an invitation to discover this diversity,
- Reserve: a collection of know-how: the most beautiful expressions of our wines,
- L'Étendard: a unique collection from our best plots, and sublimated by a slow maturation in barrels, these are rare wines of great class, produced only in certain vintages.
OUR BEAUTIFUL BOTTLES
We wanted a simple visual identity, without fuss and recognizable between all: with our flag as a signature.
Each label offers a clear design, providing all the important information: the appellation and the grape varieties in particular:
Each range has its own color: silver for the "La Balade" cuvées, gold for the "Réserves" and copper for the "L'Étendard" cuvées. All labels are printed with gold foil. This is classy.

WHAT'S ALL THIS FOR?
We have already managed to finance the creation of our (very beautiful) website and online store... The hardest part is still to come: distributing and exporting our wines so that everyone can enjoy them!
Trade fairs are therefore a must but the costs are high :
- A stand (6m2 fully equipped) for Wine Paris (June 2021) = 3834 €.
- Samples for the show + those to be sent to professionals (samples and transport): estimate 650€.
By step of 5000€ raised thanks to you :
KissKiss remuneration: 8%.
Counterparts and shipping costs: 40%.
Balance to finance the fair: 32% (about 1600 €)
HELP US TO GROW :
5 000€ are just the first step but it's a long road...
- With 10 000 € : we are going to attack Asia by participating in ProWine Singapore (March 2021).
- With 15 000€: London calling! We will be able to participate in addition to the London Wine Fair (May 2021).
- With 20 000€ : Hi NYC, here we are! We will finance our expedition to Vinexpo NY.
