The vine is present at Fontfroide since 900 years...

The Cistercians planted vines for grapes. Grapes to make wine, Eucharistic necessity.

As the "Rule of St. Benedict," which governs the life of the community, allowed to drink wine, for that matter, so do good.

Slowly, over time, the monks select the best plots, choose the right direction, learning the 'terroir', tame the grape varieties, winemaking refine their methods.

Their wine is very famous.

Today, the same family, became the owner in 1908, still cultivates these plots, animated by a passion similar to that of his venerable predecessors.

Auberge
du Vieux Puits

Auberge du Vieux Puits - Fontjoncouse





If you love excellent food and wine, then there can be no finer restaurant in the South of France as Auberge du Vieux Puits. This 3 star Michelin restaurant is run by the celebrated French chef, Gilles Goujon. I can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food, the service, the wine, the cheese . . . all were excellent. Nobody has given Gilles Goujon anything for free. On the contrary. In a bucolic atmosphere far from the mundane noise, in an austere building –sold by the tiny Town Hall– he has been progressively restoring for a decade, he has been able to captivate plenty of customers and reach the top of the French guides: 5 hats in Gault Millau and 3 stars in Michelin. We can say we are before a self-made man who had to fight and sweat blood to reach fame; a fame very few chefs deserve so clearly....
