(37) Indre-et-Loire

Located on the banks of the Cher River, the estate enjoys a special climate that allows the grapes to capture all the aromatic power of the clay and sandy soil. In addition to the fifteen hectares of vineyards, castle lovers can visit the estate and even sleep there, as it includes guest rooms and three outbuildings that can be rented. The wines of Château de Fontenay are the fruit of the meeting of two families: the Carli and Corby families. Didier Corby had been working as the estate's artisan winemaker for five years when the Carli family bought the Château in 2006. Nathalie Carli and Didier Corby began a fruitful collaboration that has resulted in wines that are faithful to the characteristics of Touraine.

Our story

The history of the estate is several centuries old. Indeed, that of the Château goes back to 1650 and that of the vineyards to 1680! A terrible fire destroyed the Château in 1871 and it was the painter and architect Auguste Bucquet who rebuilt the Château de Fontenay on the ruins of the old building in 1890, to which were added the two towers, the entire rainwater collection system and the fruit trees.

Other little stories

"Looking for a house to bring the whole family together, we fell under the charm, in 2006, of the Château de Fontenay and its 17-hectare park, including 5 hectares of vines. One year after our arrival, we wished to continue the adventure by developing a reasoned viticulture while perpetuating the work that had been done on the estate for many years. We knew how to preserve the identity of the wines of the House, while taking into account the environment and the future of our children. "We have associated a wine to each of our children. Jean-Louis is the eldest, then come Paul-Henry, Marie-Hortense and Pierre-Olivier, the youngest. Their wine corresponds to their character trait. Discover them!"
