Visit and tasting
Available in: French,  English
Take advantage of an immersion in the Font des Pères estate to discover the manufacturing processes of our wines!

During this experience, you will be able to enjoy a visit of the winemaking cellar and the maturing cellar (20 minutes), where we will describe the winemaking methods, studied and adapted for each category of wine.

Then, you will have the privilege of tasting the estate's wine directly from the barrel. Finally, the experience will end with a tasting of 6 wines of your choice (whites, reds, rosés) in accordance with a terrine prepared by our chef .

On our estate, the harvest is done by hand, in 30 kg boxes, even when the specifications of the appellation do not impose it for La Reppe.
This allows us to sort the grapes by plot and sometimes, in our quest for excellence, to harvest it in two parts, a few days apart.
The methods used in the vineyard as well as in the cellar are strictly identical whatever the appellation. The only exception: for La Reppe rouge, maturing in casks is limited to a few weeks.

About the host

It was told that observantine monks were installed on this exceptionnal site, rich in natural ressources, in the middle of the XIII century.
Religious, yet farmers, due to the awareness of the hill’s rich soil, they planted numerous corps and subsequently the first vines appeared.
Named after its natural springs (La Font) and the people who exploited it (Les Pères), the story of La Font des Pères started.
These days the story of LFDP is continued by Caroline et Philippe Chauvin. In 2010, they fell under the charm of the site, which was in a region they had known by heart since the 80’s.
Due to their success, they more than doubled their land to 14 ha.
The wine cellar enlarged with the decision to sell direct to the public and to the farmhouses. Most of the production was sold on the site, benefitting from the beauty of the site to attract customers.
At the foot of the site, they bought 4 villas and renovated them in order to further develop wine tourism.
Gastronomy and quality wines, added to a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, are the receipe for success and the writing of news pages of the continuing story of LFDP.

Beautiful location with a friendly guide who spoke good English. Interesting to hear how everything came about and what the winemaking process looks like. The wines themselves are also very tasty!
