In a verdant setting, Cathy and Daniel Fournié tend 29 hectares of vines on the prestigious 3rd terraces of stony, siliceous clay in the Lot valley. The Malbec variety is the star and is used to produce three distinct styles of wine to accompany your meals to perfection. Château Haut-Monplaisir also offers three IGP Côtes du Lot wines : dry and sweet white Monplaisir Blanc and the rosé Mélodie Estivale, to vary the pleasures on offer ! The estate has Organic Agriculture certification. You can also stay in their gîte a few kilometres away.
This estate has been progressively built up over the past twenty years on land which used to be planted with vines last century. Its name is linked to the "Pech" (hill) over which most of the vineyard extends. On the site of a former parish which no longer exists, its church dedicated to St. Julien was sold as "national property" at the time of the Revolution. On the estate's 7 hectares, the Cabernet, Cot, Merlot, Gamay and Tannat varieties are grown in soil typical of the area: ochre-red calcareous clays which are shallow and very stony, providing ideal conditions for the production of high-quality wine. All the stages and procedures necessary for making our wines take place on the estate (wine-making, bottling, packaging....)
Cahors wine and Coteaux du Quercy wine. They have also developped food supplements made from grape seeds.
Duck farmer and producer of foie gras, confit, pâté, etc... You can find them to the local producers market on Wednesday night in Castelnau-Montratier.
Magnificent vineyard situated partly in the Lot and partly in the Tarn-et-Garonne, in the Coteaux du Quercy wine area. The estate extends over 27 hectares. It is run by the Gisbert and Quèbre families, who are very attentive to the good management of their vineyard. There can be no doubt about this when you taste their delicious Quercy wines. They are generous and solid, like the inhabitants of this region. The Chai St. Etienne offers red wines, red wines aged in oak and both dry and sweet rosés for tasting.
The Fontanet farm raises lamb and sells its meat packed in individual pieces.
Wine producer : mainly Cahors wine and country wine. In winter some truffles.
