CHÂTEAU LES FERMENTEAUX

My grandparents bought the property in the 1920s but did not specialize in the vine culture; they used to grow different crops. When I became the owner of the estate in 1995, I gave all my love to wine: I decided to plant different red grape varietals and I build a wine cellar. I never get tired of spending time among my vines. Working in the cellar is what I prefer about wine.
