La Maison Cardinale is the name of the group that brings together all the Vineyard 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.

In addition to its exceptional wines, La Maison Cardinale also offers unique experiences:

* Inspiring Business Seminars

* Intimate Business Receptions

* Private Business Dinners

* Private Rental of Unconventional Areas 

* Immersive Experiences

* Private Tastings


Vineyards that bring us close to our land and Experiences that will bring you close to your emotions.

Following our opening up to wine tourism, we were fortunate to be distinguished with a Best of Wine tourism 2022, in the Discovery and Innovation category as well as a Best of Wine tourism 2023, in the environemental pratices in wine tourism category. 

We are as well certified Tourism and Handicap since October 2022.
