Presentation of Château Fontarabie
The château was bought in 1995 to diversify production and enhance our range of Côtes de Bourg and Bordeaux wines.
The property is located on a superb hillside of predominantly Merlot vines, where Delphine FAURE MAISON enjoys creating a powerful wine of her own inspiration.
The family purchased this 20-hectare vineyard in Blaye Côtes de Bordeaux in 1995 to extend its range of Côtes de Bourg and Bordeaux appellations.
The name stems from the Spanish Basque city of Fontaria. Dedication to the LAND is characteristic of the family’s philosophy here too.
