|Situated at the heart of the Chateauneuf du Pape ‘Appellation’, between Avignon and Orange, the castle ‘La Font du Loup’ is set in the charming and convivial Provencal village Courthezon, a city of art and history. La Font du Loup is a family domain whose name already appeared on the Napoleonic land register.
This locality owes its name to the spring now situated at the heart of the domain. It’s one of the rare springs of the region that has not been exploited.
The legend has it that the wolves of the Mont Ventoux came to drink to this spring while they were going down to our Provencal plains. The people living in the surrounding villages called this place ‘La Font du Loup’ which means the fountains of the wolves.
Our attachment to history and to the traditions is found in our working methods, essentially inspired by the traditional discipline, and governed by draconian rules, their respect having contributed to the notoriety of the appellation:
- Constant improvement in the grapes quality.
- Wine maturing in accordance with its own characteristics.
- Bottling at the castle.
