Childhood friends, Jérôme and Frédéric decided in 1997 to conduct a first joint wine experience: a mass selection of Cabernet Sauvignon is then planted in Roussillon and a rare wine, called Marius (Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes) is for the first time marketed in 2004. There are now some 4,000 bottles sold on the largest markets. In 2008, they embark on another human and wine experience and revive an estate graced by centuries of history, le lieudit Fontbonau. They assign the operational responsibility to Sophie Mage graduated from ENITA (National School of Agricultural Engineering) and winemaker.
Preserved, wild, enchanting, the landscape of Fontbonau consists in 70 years old Grenache vines and 30 years syrah, truffle oaks, lavender and olive trees. Since their acquisition, they have been keen on constantly upgrading this place with all due respect to local traditional cultures.
