The Vrignaud family have been winegrowers in the village of Fontenay-prés-Chablis for 5 generations. A typical Chablis village that was already founded in 1130 by the Templars and their 12th century church is the oldest in the region. The domain of the Vrignaud family is 19ha and is located in the middle of the best vineyards of Fourchaume. The domain includes 10ha of vineyards in the Chablis, the northernmost appellation of Burgundy. The wines are made from chardonnay like most white wines in Burgundy. The vineyards are cultivated using the organic method, for example no weed killers or pesticides are used routinely in the vineyard. Their oldest vineyards, which are still in use today, date back to 1955 and are used to make the Chablis 1er Cru “Fourchaume” Vieilles Vignes.
