The ‘fairy spring’ has been here since Gallo-Roman times, the house dates back to the 13th century. The wines however are thoroughly modern and Thierry and Philippe are real innovators. Pouilly-Fuissé matured in Acacia barrels; screw-caps and contemporary labels; Ayurvedic massage available in the maison d’hotes next door… this is a truly individual winery. The wines are splendid, as is the amazing guest accommodation. Source des Fées wines are exported to the UK – if you can’t find any just get on the TGV from St Pancras and you can be in Macon Loché (only 5km from the property) in just over 5 hours!
