- What is now the Cave de Fleurie began during WWI as a loose collective of women banding together to produce and sell their local wine while the men were off soldiering. Founded as an official cooperative in 1927, it was another woman, Marguerite Chabert, who led them into modern times as the 1st woman president of a French wine co-op; helming and growing the business from 1946-1985.
