FONVENE is our best value wine which could be your ideal house wine.
It’s a great ambassador of the central western section of the Rhone Valley, the beautiful and mountainous region of the Cévennes. A region where the turmoil of French history and natural hard tough conditions have combined to inspire courageous wine growers who are as proud of their “terroirs” as we are of this selection.
In this southwestern natural boundary (Massif Central mountain) of Ardèche you can admire not only this vineyard but also olive groves and endemic chestnut trees.
“Fonvene” is a fusion of the words “Font-Vive”, an emerald water spring and the name of the region south of the Ardèche, the Cévennes.
“Too poor to host cities, too rich to be abandoned, the landscape of Causses and Cévennes are the result of the modification of the natural environment by agro-pastoral systems over a millennium. The Causses and Cévennes demonstrate almost every type of pastoral organisation to be found around the Mediterranean”
