Antoine de La Farge

The wines of Antoine de La Farge are a new venture for the grandson of Bernard Clément, one of the founders of the Menetou-Salon appellation in 1959 and founder of the famous Domain de Châtenoy. Antoine’s mother inherited 12 hectares (from the original estate) from her father, naming it Domaine de L’Ermitage and running it with her husband, Geraud. After completing his degree in enology and working outside of the family business for 5 years, Antoine joined his parents at Domaine de L’Ermitage, helping them run the estate. In the last few years he has invested in his own vineyards and is making wine under his name.

Domaine de l'Ermitage

Located in the heart of Menetou-Salon, this domain is owned and operated by Laurent & Geraud de La Farge with the help of their son, Antoine de La Farge (who has struck out with vineyards and wines under his own name). The 12 hectares of vineyards (80% is Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Pinot Noir) that make up this estate were originally part of Domain de Châtenoy, belonging to Bernard Clément, Laurent’s father (and Antoine’s grandfather) and founding father of the Menetou-Salon appellation in 1959. The vineyards are hand-harvested and sustainably farmed. The appellation terroir is made of sediments dating back to the Jurassic period and now extends to over 450 hectares.
