The history of Fronton's vineyards are tied to the history of this southwest region of France which for several centuries was governed by the Order of Saint-Jean-of Jerusalem.

A few years later, in 1122, traces of the importance and fame of this vineyard are noted in a parchment written in Latin in a reference to the donation of Fronton wine to the Order of Saint-Jean-of-Jerusalem.
