Situated on the banks of the Cher river, the estate enjoys a special climate that allows the grapes to capture all the aromatic power of a clay and sandy soil. In addition to the fifteen hectares of vines, lovers of châteaux 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 a craftsman-winemaker on the estate for five years when the Carli bought the Château in 2006. Nathalie Carli and Didier Corby then began a fruitful collaboration that resulted in wines that are faithful to the typical Touraine characteristics.
The history of the estate is centuries old. Indeed, the Château dates back to 1650 and the vineyards to 1680! Then, a terrible fire destroyed the Château in 1871 and it was the painter and architect Auguste Bucquet who rebuilt, on the ruins of the old building, the Château de Fontenay in 1890, to which were added the two towers, the entire rainwater collection system, the fruit trees, etc.
"Looking for a house to bring the whole family together, we fell under the spell, in 2006, of the Château de Fontenay and its 17-hectare park, including 5 hectares of vines. One year after our arrival, we wanted to continue the adventure by developing a reasoned viticulture while perpetuating the work that had been carried out on the estate for many years. We've managed to preserve the identity of the House's wines, while taking into account the environment and our children's future."
"We've paired a wine with each of our children. Jean-Louis is the eldest, followed by Paul-Henry, Marie-Hortense and Pierre-Olivier, the youngest. Their wine corresponds to their character trait. Discover them!"
