Our Vineyard

Château Fonrazade is found next to the famous Premier Grand Cru Classé Château Angelus, on the southern slopes of the Saint-Emilion hills, less than 1 kilometer from the medieval village.
The vineyard stretches over 13 hectares (about 32 acres) of sandy brown soils, down the south-western slope of the Coteau de Mazerat.

The vines, with a density of about 5500 vines per hectare, consist of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. They are on the average 40 years old, which is an index of the quality of the wines.

Every day, the vineyard is monitored and operated with care. "Green harvesting" coupled with grading grapes while still on the vines, well before the harvest, complemented by hand-picking harvest practices and then finally sorting grapes by hand in the cellar, ensure that only optimal quality grapes make it into the vinification vats.
