Domaine de Fontavin
Like any good story, Domaine Fontavin started with a love story. In this case, that of Martine CLERC and Michel CHOUVET, which dates back to the 70s. Martine came from Violès and Michel from Bédarrides. Both brought vines and a shared the love for their profession which carried deep into the marriage.
Their dream of full independence became reality when the domain suddenly grew in size with the creation of the “Domaine de Fontavin” winery in 1989.
Following the footsteps of her father, Hélène CHOUVET-COTON became oenologist and started working with her parents in 1996. Since then she has continued her chosen path and now manages the domain.
Domaine de Fontavin, with 45 hectares in 8 municipalities, looks literally like a bunch of grapes. It is a single structure and yet one composed of several appellations. Behind each appellation, each terroir, the imprint left by the grandparents is present. Each appellation has its typical character and terroir, and to this Domaine de Fontavin adds its vines, roots, images and aromas.
Hélène’s wines are the distillation of family memories and the expression of her own sensitivity!
The conversion to organic farming dates back to 2008. Hélène CHOUVET-COTON has a humanistic view of the vine and the grape. For her, working with vines according to organic principles is not just a concept, and it is more than a growing method, it is a way of life. The goal is also to produce quality wines. The result can be appreciated when the wine is tasted: fruit, elegance, concentration.
“Hélène the winemaker”, creates wines that reflect her character. They are wines filled with freedom and truth, just as she would educate her own children, teaching them wisdom, patience and love.
