Font de Michelle

Domain: Font de Michelle

Domaine Font de Michelle was founded in 1880 thanks to Jean Etienne Gonnet but its current incarnation is down to his grandson Etienne Gonnet who, in 1950, took on the 30 hectares of vines situated in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. From 1975, his sons Jean and Michel took over the domaine with a mission to improve vinification methods and produce richer, more concentrated wines that retained their elegance. Things are still a family affair thanks to the baton being passed down to their respective sons, Bertrand and Guillaume. 2002 marked a turning point in the domaine’s history: the family acquired parcels in the Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Rhône Villages appellations. For more than 20 years, the domaine has adopted an environmentally friendly philosophy towards winemaking. Organic compost is used instead of fertilizers and the soil is tilled with a plough.
