Situated in Verdigny, in the heart of the Sancerre appellation, Maison Fournier is the legacy of several generations of winegrowers. It all began in 1950, when Paul Fournier started his business activities.
For him, viticulture was all about passion. It took him 9 years to accomplish his objective of producing his first wine on just 2 hectares of land.
Twenty years later, Claude and Jacques, two of his sons, picked up the torch and developed the vineyard with a similar passion. In the early 1990s, Maison Fournier – Père et Fils covered over 60 hectares located throughout the most renowned appellations of Sauvignon Blanc: Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Menetou-Salon.
Since then, the vineyard grew with the acquisition of highly acclaimed domaines like Saint Romble in Sancerre and also Les Berthiers (Jean Claude Daganeau) and Domaine Paul Corneau in Pouilly-Fumé. The Fournier family spared no effort and continuously developed the business into the company that we know today.
The wines of Maison Fournier Père et Fils are renowned in over 65 countries for their consistent quality. Their wines were selected among the top 100 wines sold around the world and have won numerous awards such as the “Concours Mondial du Sauvignon Blanc”, “The Korean Wine Challenge” and have been mentioned in many national and international guides and magazines (Guide Hachette 2017, Wine Spectator…).
