About the host

The name of Fombrauge is derived from "Fons brogiera", which means "spring surrounded by heather and bushes". These sources which made the name of this Grand Cru Classé still exist and are found in the heart of our vines. The history of Fombrauge is linked to 3 families, the Canolle, the Dumas, and the Taffard. Today, to express all the richness of this terroir, Bernard Magrez, owner since 1999, combines ancestral know-how and precision viticulture with Fombrauge. With a vineyard stretching over 58.60 hectares, it is precisely this extraordinary surface area that gives its terroir a unique typicity… A typicity in diversity. Diversity of soils but also multiplicity of exposures which give Fombrauge wine its complexity and identity. Discover this Grand Cru Classé, the largest estate in Saint-Emilion and witness to the history of France.
