Château Les Fermenteaux

My grandparents bought the property in the 1920s, but without devoting themselves entirely to the vineyard. They grew a bit of everything. When I became owner of the estate in 1995, I gave it all the love I feel for wine. I planted it to red grapes and built a wine cellar. Today, the vineyard covers 25 hectares. I spend a lot of time amongst my vines and I never get tired of it. My favourite part? Vinification, the work in the cellars.

The name of the Château comes from a locality called Les Fermenteaux.
