Chateau de la Font du Loup
La Font du Loup is a unique 20 ha family estate which has been in my family for the past 100 years. It is located on the top of La Crau, North facing , with all the vines planted on a sandy soil. Our Terroir allows us to produce extremly elegant, delicate and graceful wines which have been very well awarded over the years.
We've been practicing organic agriculture for decades now and are HVE level 3 certified, and officialy in conversion for 3 years already. The use of sheeps to eat the grass and horse to work the vineyard is also for us a good way to protect our old vines and the environment.
