A completely restructured vineyard moving towards organic farming
Wine growing at Fontenille dates from the early 17th century. Laurence Berlemont, oenologist, agronomist and a specialist in Provence wines, began restructuring the Domain in 2013 with the aim of restoring the Domain to its original size: 35 hectares of vines in one geographical area around the Domain.
As an advocate of sustainable farming, the Domain has been
converting itself to organic farming since 2014, and benefits from the latest
wine making techniques in a new wine cellar with traditional architecture.
Different types of vinification are being promoted
thanks to the optimization of interior space: rounded concrete tanks placed
in a semicircle, rows of stainless steel tanks immersed in wooden barrel
The wine tasting shop opens onto Fontenille's vineyards and cedars. It presents the highlights of grape growing and wine making. In 2016, the shop will also offer Tasting and Oenology Courses.
