About Chateau de Montfort:
Chateau de Montfort is a stunning historic estate located on the limestone plateau above the Loire River in the Touraine region. Originally a fortified farmhouse dating back to the 14th Century, this historic property covers approximately 75 acres of premium quality land across Vouvray AOC and Touraine AOC.
The vineyards of Chateau de Montfort, based in clay and limestone soils on a bedrock of chalky limestone tufo, are predominantly planted to Chenin Blanc. The estate is somewhat unique in that most of its vines are located surrounding the winemaking facility in one large parcel. Average vine age is over 50 years, limiting yields and providing great concentration and depth in the wine.
