Fontaine du Clos benefits from a unique location

With Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the south west and Vacqueyras to the north east presided by the peaks of the Dentelles de Montmirail and Mont Ventoux. Their vineyards stretch for 100 ha, with 14 hectares within the Vacqueyras AOC and 13 hectares of Côtes du Rhône, providing the fruit for their range of 14 wines as well as the substrate for their prestigious nursery. Altitude, slope, cool winds and well-drained soils with large pebbles make up the terroir on which Fontaine du Clos has built its prestige and trademark quality, for both wines and vegetative stock.

Fontaine du Clos operates as a vine nursery that supplies some of the most prestigious estates across the French territory. Their operation covers 50 hectares of “mother vine” on original rootstock and 50 hectares of graft “mother vines”.
