  • Introduction

    • This name pays tribute to the Faiveley family’s ancestors who were, in the early 20th century, industrial leaders and statesmen. Amongst them was Maurice Colrat de Montrozier, great uncle and witness to the marriage of Guy Faiveley (5th generation) and Yvonne Faiveley in June of 1945- an occasion that marked the coming together of two very different industries: wine and rail.
