Moncontour has always been a matter of passion. Honoré de Balzac, the famous writer of the XIX century, literally fell in love with the smart, pretty castle, reflected in the river along with its vineyards, its caves and its coat of ivy. Despite all his efforts, Balzac, did not acquire Moncontour. Others, more successful, had the pleasure and responsibility to add their names to the short list of Moncontour’s owners since Guillaume de Sainte Maure in 1271, Charles VII, king of France, rebuilt the castle during the XV century for his Mistress Agnès Sorelle. The current owner, the Feray family, purchased it in 1994. With the same passion as their predecessors, they have never stopped to revamp the vineyard and to improve the winemaking cellar to make Moncontour vineyard one of the most beautiful and renowned of the region.
