Welcome to Domaine de Fontenille

Situated in the heart of Provence, on the southern slopes of the Luberon, Domaine de Fontenille stands out for its combination of tradition and innovation in the production of quality wines, certified organic. Founded in the early 17th century, this exceptional vineyard now extends over 39 hectares in a single block.

Terroir and vineyard

Fontenille's unique terroir, with its clay-limestone and stony soils and gently sloping topography, ensures optimum sunshine and effective drainage. The mistral wind, typical of the region, naturally contributes to the health of the vines. The grape varieties grown are typical of the Luberon PDO, reflecting the richness and diversity of this exceptional terroir.

Innovation and tradition in winemaking

The restructuring of the vineyard, launched in 2013, bears witness to our commitment to preserving the authenticity of the Domaine while incorporating modern advances in winemaking. Our winery, which respects traditional architecture, is equipped with concrete and stainless steel vats, as well as wooden barrels, allowing a tailor-made approach to the vinification of each type of wine.

Oenological experiences

Domaine de Fontenille invites visitors to enjoy a range of unique wine-making experiences, allowing them to immerse themselves in the winemaking process. From working the vines to harvesting the grapes, through the various stages of production to the final blends, visitors can discover the world of wine and the passion that drives our estate.

Our tasting room, overlooking the vineyards and centuries-old cedars, is the ideal place to appreciate the quality of our wines and the beauty of the Provencal landscape.

We invite you to come and discover Domaine de Fontenille, where each bottle tells the story of a rich terroir and know-how handed down through the generations.
