Fonplégade is the only château in Saint-Emilion open to guests seven days a week, year round for private experiences. Unlike other wineries, we are proud to offer custom, by-appointment tour and tasting experiences that are specifically tailored to the interests of each group of guests. To ensure the intimate nature of these one-of-a-kind experiences, our guided visits are completely private—for you and your friends alone. We invite you to discover our beautiful and historic estate to enjoy the heritage and hospitality of Château Fonplégade as you explore our Grand Cru Classé wines.


Daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (year round including weekends and bank holidays – Christmas and New Year's Day excluded)


We are pleased to work with you to create unforgettable, by-appointment custom tasting experiences that expand on the following options:
