It is not the ” Roman de Renart “ tale written in the XIIth century, it is the story of the Fox of the River

At the time when FOX was master of the village and of the surrounding henhouses, the wine growers spent their time elaborating the plan of his capture!
Their vineyards in the sandy and calcareous hillsides of « La Rivière » were dotted with dens

At the time when FOX was master of the village and of the surrounding henhouses, the wine growers spent their time elaborating the plan of his capture!

Their vineyards in the sandy and calcareous hillsides of « La Rivière » were dotted with dens

One day a worker in his vineyard observed closer one of them, dug deeper with a pickaxe and was surprised because the hole in the sand never seemed to fill

By scratching above it, he discovered a beautiful plate of limestone horizontal,
solid as a rock and which allowed to structure the den.

The observer wine grower confirmed to himself that Fox was more cunning than it was believed, since then baptized his sandy land ; Land of Renard “and naturally, his house:” Château Renard
