A vineyard that traces its history back to 1290.

‘A particularity of the microclimate of De Fontenille is the constant wind, which certainly reduces the threat of disease and need to spray. The grapes are given some skin contact, fermented at cool temperatures, and aged three months sur lie. 'Stephen Brook.
