Fronsac

AN HISTORIC FINE WINE REGION
A former fiefdom, Charlemagne built a fortress here; the hills are perfectly sculpted to accommodate the most noble grape varieties.

WHEN THE DAUPHINE OF FRANCE VISITED... LA DAUPHINE
Louis XVI’s mother, Mary Josepha gave her title of La Dauphine to the property in memory of her stay at the château in the 18th century
