Story The Domaine de Fondrèche estate is situated at the foot of Mont Ventoux, particularly famous thanks to the Tour de France, on a plateau where cattle used to drink. In fact, « Frondreche » means the spring in Provencal dialect. Created in 1991, Domaine de Fondrèche is now run by Sebastien Vicenti, the 2nd generation working on the estate. It covers an area of 52 hectares of vines and 20 ha of woods. Thanks to a major vineyard restructuring, 3 different types of soils/locations were identified, each one assigned to a specific production. Farming philosophy : Organic and biodynamic (No certification)
