Chateau de Fesles Chenin Sec NV.jpg

Constructed in 1070 atop one of the highest peaks in the Loire Valley, Château de Fesles has stood for over 950 hundred years. Monks were the first to grow vines along the château’s hillside, and it wasn’t until 1870, when it was bought the Bouvin family, that it began its journey to becoming one of the best-known estates in the appellation. For the past 12 years the current owners, the Helrich family, have continued the work that began almost a millennium ago, create the best possible cuvées the land has to offer.
