Vines have been grown at Château de Fontenille since the 13th century and a pilgrimage route, protected by UNESCO, runs through the vineyards to the neighbouring Abbaye de la Sauve-Majeure, whose monks tended the vines for hundreds of years. Stéphane Defraine bought the property in 1989 and has gradually renovated the estate. As the president of the local ‘syndicat’, Stéphane’s passion for the Entre-Deux-Mers region is clear.

The wine is vegan.

Stéphane now owns 49 hectares of vines in total, of which 17 hectares are planted with white varieties and 32 hectares with red. Situated at an altitude of 110 metres above sea level, between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, the vineyard’s free-draining gravel and clay soils, as well as the high winds in the area, ensure healthy, balanced grapes packed with flavour at harvest.

The average age of the vines used for Fontenille’s Bordeaux Rouge is 20 years. It is a classic Bordeaux blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and is aged 50% in oak and 50% in tank.
