Domaine Ventoura is a family owned estate in Fontenay with 11 hectares of Petit Chablis, Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru vineyards. The domain was founded in 1953 by Auguste Ventoura, a simple farmer who owned a few sheep, a couple cows, and some land he planted to cereal fields and vines. The winery passed to Claude Ventoura, Auguste’s son, who expanded the family holdings and began bottling estate wines (for 25 years the fruit was sold to the local coop). Today, the third generation - Thomas - has assumed the reins, already making a name for himself at age 29 as an up and comer in the region.
