The vines of Château de Fontenille have flourished on gravel terroirs bathed in generous sun since the 13th century. Hidden among the vineyards was a pilgrimage route to the neighboring Benedictine monastery, Abbaye de la Sauve Majeure, whose monks tended to the vines for hundreds of years. With nearly 42 acres dedicated to Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Gris varieties, the history of this site is alive in the gravel and clay dominated soils that contribute to the purity of the Château de Fontenille Entre Deux Mers.
About the Vineyard
Located on the edge of the watershed between the Garonne and the Dordogne rivers, the vineyard is made of gravelly loam soil called "boulbene." This unique situation at 105 meters altitude allows the vines to have good air circulation and therefore low pressure of fungal diseases. Certified HVE3
