Château de Fosse-Sèche is a winery standing on a property where there were already vineyards in the thirteenth century. In 1996 the winery was bought by a family and is run by two twins and their partners. They work their vineyards organically and biodynamically, they affirm a great respect for nature and seek to preserve the biodiversity of their terroir.

Château de Fosse-Sèche Eolithe Saumur Rouge comes from vineyards that are 10 to 50 years old. Its average yield is very low, at 19 hectolitres per hectare, which ensures a balanced grape. The vineyards are in plots with soil that originated in the Jurassic period, formed with gravels bound together by a slightly clayey soil.

Château de Fosse-Sèche Eolithe Saumur Rouge macerates with the skins for 3 to 5 days. Once fermented, it is aged on lees for 21 months in cement tanks. It has a ageing potential of about ten years.
