Exceptional soils always have great stories to tell

Land Stories

Château Fonsalade represents, with its 25 hectares, a real patchwork of soils with 6 different kinds of land, going from the argilo-calcareous marles to the schist. Finally, 9 distinct grape varieties are combined in this patchwork of soils in order for it to be able to fully express its whole potential. All of this, as well as the combination of different altitudes, allow us to obtain a range of complex and very different wines.

Rewards & Medals

As the time goes by, Château Fonsalade has proved a regular proficiency in the wine production sector. We have been rewarded by medals at national competitions (Vignerons indépendants, Concours agricole de Paris) as well as at international contests (Decanter World Wine Award…) for many years. And all is in place to get several more awards in the future!
