Fonplégade is the only château in Saint-Emilion open to guests seven days a week, year round for private tours. 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 tours are completely private—your tour will be for you and your friends alone. We invite you to visit 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 tour and tasting experiences that expand on the following tour options:

PORTFOLIO TOUR & TASTING – (30€ per person)

Guests learn about the history of Château Fonplégade, our conversion to organic winegrowing and our approach to winemaking, as they explore the barrel and vat rooms and tour our beautiful l'Orangerie. Our Portfolio Tour & Tasting spotlights four prestigious wines (one Grand Cru Classé, two Grand Cru from Saint-Emilion and one Pomerol)


For guests who want to dig a little deeper into our famed terroir and our organic farming practices, our Enhanced Tour offers an exploration of our vineyard in our electric "mule" car, including a breathtaking view from the top of the hill. This is followed by our traditional Portfolio Tour, and a tasting of four prestigious wines (one Grand Cru Classé, two Grand Cru from Saint-Emilion and one Pomerol). Limited to four guests in the mule car. Subject to weather conditions.
