Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie was founded in 1988 by the Hubua family. Benedicte Hubba and Gregoire Hubba did not come to Bordeaux with a background in wine. They were chemists and computer scientists. After asking for help from their more experienced neighbors, the next decision they made was to bring in Michel Rolland as their consultant.

The estate is 7.63 hectares with 6.75 hectares under vine. The vineyard of Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie has a terroir of clay and limestone soil, similar to what you might find at some of the better Right Bank estates. The vineyard is planted to 95% Merlot and 5% Malbec . The vineyard is planted to a vine density that ranges from 6,000 to 7,000 vines per hectare. The vines are old. On average they are close to 65 years of age. The vineyard of Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie is farmed using only 100% organic farming techniques.

To produce the wine of Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie, vinification takes place in small concrete vats on a parcel by parcel basis. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. The wine is then aged in an average of 33% new, French oak barrels for an average of 18 months before bottling. On average, close to 3,000 cases of wine are produced at Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie each vintage.

In total, the Hubba family owns 15 hectares of vines in the Canon Fronsac appellation. From those vines, the estate also produces two additional wines; Chateau Haut Lariveau, which comes from a 4.5 hectares vineyard they purchased in 1990. Chateau Haut Lariveau is made from 100% Merlot grapes and Chateau Combes Canon which is produced from a 3.5 hectare parcel of vines.
