La Maison Cardinale is the name of the group that brings together all the Vineyards and Experience activities of the D. Decoster family.

Driven by the desire to gently initiate a revolution in the world of Grands Crus, La Maison Cardinale takes an in-tune winegrowing approach to its terroir. Through the vineyards of Château Fleur Cardinale and Château Croix Cardinale, La Maison Cardinale distinctly explores the two opposite slopes of the same limestone plateau, encouraging us to think outside the box and allow room for the unexpected.
