Domaine Fontavin :
Like any good story, it has a love story at its heart. In this case, that of Martine CLERC and Michel CHOUVET, wich started back in the 70’s. Martine came from Violès, Michel from Bédarrides. Both brought vines and a shared love of their craft into the mariage. Their dream of independance took shape as the domaine gradually grew in size and became a reality with the creation of the “Domaine de Fontavin” winery in 1989. Following in the footsteps of her father, Hélène CHOUVET COTON became an oenologist and started working with her parents in 1996. Since then she has continued along her chosen route and now manages the domaine.
One day, the winegrower had a great idea: make a nice little white owl with her muscat in Beaumes de Venise. Not sweet, not complicated, very fresh, it is a seducer who comes out of our cellars. Irresistible freshness!
