As the remains of Roman furrows discovered on the property attest, the land of Fonplégade has housed vines since the 2nd century. It was not until 1852 that the different plots were brought together to form the vineyard today. Acquired in 2004 by Denise and Stephen Adams, the castle Fonplégade, Grand Cru Classé de Saint-Emilion, has since experienced an unprecedented period of renewal.They worked tirelessly with their team to revitalize the vines, renovate the cellars, restore the castle and even rebuild the east tower that had burned during the war. Certified organic farming since 2013 and biodynamics since 2020, property has continued to improve its agricultural practices thanks to an approach favoring biodiversity and the global approach to agricultural exploitation.In this perspective and in order to continuously improve the quality of its wines, the estate not only welcomes vines, but also sheep, hens and bees.
