An ancestral passion
for great wines
Establishment of H. Cuvelier & Fils
In 1804 Henri Cuvelier decided to share his passion for great wines with his friends, the great bourgeois families of northern France who lived in the wealthy, dynamic cities of Lille, Boulogne-sur-Mer, Arras and Valenciennes. He founded H. Cuvelier & Fils, a wine Negociant company that met with quick success and went on to expand throughout the 19th century.
