Located 15 kilometres from Bordeaux, Château Fonchereau is a former noble house of Château Lamothe. Traditionally, production has been very varied. The vines are all in one piece, surrounded by a forest that protects them and enjoys a microclimate that prevents hail and frost. Slightly sloping and composed of clayey gravel, the soil facilitates rainwater drainage. The grape varieties are 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc for the red vines (28 hectares) and Semillon for the white vines (2 hectares).

Our story

Going back in time, Château Fonchereau depended as a noble house on Château Lamothe, it belonged to the President of the Bordeaux Parliament; Gilles Geneste, then Jean Talartry, Guyenne's treasurer of finance. Many personalities followed, such as Chevalier François de Cursol, or Dame de Guimps, Montaigne's cousin. The castle was even a place of resistance during the Second World War. In 2006, Alfredo acquired the estate and became the first winegrower in Latin America in France.

Other little stories

For us, the management of a vineyard is similar to that of a garden where we respect the terroir and practice rational viticulture.
