(37) Indre-et-Loire

Located on the banks of the Cher river, the estate enjoys a particular climate that allows the grapes to capture all the aromatic power of a clayey and sandy soil. In addition to the fifteen hectares of vines, 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 result of the meeting of two families: the Carli and Corby families. Didier Corby had been working as an artisan winegrower at the Domaine for five years when the Carli family bought the Château in 2006. Nathalie Carli and Didier Corby then began a fruitful collaboration that resulted in wines that were faithful to the characteristics of Touraine.

Our story

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.

Other little stories

"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!"
