Established in 1967 by Maurice Grignon, the family winemaking and trading company originally
specialised in the production and sale of wine-making materials. Then in 1992, the company was sold and became an Association of Cooperatives and started producing wines from Languedoc- Roussillon.In 1996, the company made significant investments into modern equipment, improved storage and now specialises in the production of high quality wines. The name Foncalieu is made up of letters of villages in the region of l`Aude - Fonties de Aude, Capendu - ALzonne - Montolieu.
La Loupe is a very approachable, fruit-driven red made from Grenache, grown in the Mediterranean vineyards of the Languedoc, an area well known for its ideal climate conditions. It is hot during the day and cooler at night enabling the vines to mature fruit well, whilst the Mistral and Tramontane winds help keep the vines healthy and low-yielding. Modern winemaking ensures ripe summer fruit flavours are well balanced. The nose is peppery with herbal scents and juicy ripe fruit flavours typical of the Languedoc, together with a smooth texture and supple, mouth filling finish
