The Estate
The wine is produced at the Cave Fontesole (Les Vignerons de Fontès) located in Southern France, 55 km from Montpellier, on the footstep of the Cévennes hills.


The cave cooperative has been created in 1930 by 30 grape-growers. Today, it is more than 200 members that are part of the Cave.
The "vignerons" (grapegrowers and winemakers) proud of their Terroirs are producing fruity and generous wines in the respect of the traditions.
