Château Fonsalade

A history of passion

Château Fonsalade has been at the heart of Languedoc for almost 130 years. The 32 hectares of vineyards within the Saint-Chinian and Roquebrun appellations afford all the advantages of the two types of soils present in the region: limestone-enriched soil, which allows us to make structured, fruity, and elegant wines, and also schist soils, which yield tannins that are more supple for silky and velvety wines.
