Total Annual Production:
Since 1864, five generations of winemakers have toiled to preserve the ancestral winemaking vocation and bring out the best of the special terroir of this small French area of the northern Catalan country. In 1989, Pierre & Marie-Claude FONTANEIL created the DOMAINE FONTANEL by joining the two families together. Since this date, the wines are recognized in the wine press worldwide. Since 2016, Elodie et Matthieu Collet, both food and Oenology Engineers, continue what has been built.
Elodie and Matthieu COLLET met in the north of France during their master of science studies. They have learnt about wine in Bordeaux (Château Haut-Brion), Champagne (Moet & Chandon) and Loire Valley in France. Matthieu also worked in Prince Michel Vineyard in Virginia beside Brad Hansen, Oenologist from Washington state. They are inspired by terroir and work hard on selective blends and "cuvées".
