The Organic Wine Company was founded by Véronique Raskin in 1980. Véronique was born and raised in the South of France. For many generations her ancestors owned land in the Languedoc region, close to the historic walled city of Carcassone. She attended the University of Toulouse, and originally came to this country in 1973. Meanwhile, back in France, her 75 year-old grandfather, Pierre Fabre, a Professor of Medicine, was pioneering organic viticulture. He decided to convert the family property, “La Bousquette,” to organic methods and to bottle its wine. By 1980 he had accomplished these goals, and had transmitted the organic bug to Véronique. She offered to import the La Bousquette wines into California, to maintain a connection with the family land, and to further her grandfather’s dream. She was passionate about the organic vision, and believed that organic wine was an idea whose time had come.
