A glimpse of history...
Back in the 1970's, Martine et Michel CHOUVET married each other. Both issued from several generations of agriculturists, they have been sharing the same love for the lands and developped a strong passion for the vine.
The family property, wich is divided up on 6 different towns, then extends throughout the years, resulting in 1989 in the construction of their own vinification cellar. At that time they became "Independent winemakers". They since then elaborate their own wines that are marketed under the name "Domaine de Fontavin".
In 1996 Hélène, their oenologist daughter, joined the family's estate.
In 2008, a transition to organic farming is officially started.
Step by step the vineyard is growing to 45 ha on 8 different towns.
2011 : the first organic vintage !
