Producer Since the 17th century, the BARON family owned a vineyard in Charly sur Marne, in the west of the Champagne area. Dolores Fuente is the daughter of Spanish immigrants and saw the hard side of live in Spain and at her arrival in France. Gabriel Baron and Dolores Fuente met at the local dance hall. At the time, the profession of a winemaker was not very much recognised, so Gabriel pretended to be a postman. In 1961, at the occasion of his marriage to Dolores, Gabriel Baron was given 1 ha of vineyards by his father. And in 1967, as a symbol of their union, Gabriel Baron and Dolores Fuente founded the house Baron-Fuente.
The first bottles were produced and sold directly from the house. Since then, the company kept on developing year after year. In 1982, their daughter Sophie joined Gabriel and Dolores and starts working with her parents. In 1992, their son Ignace also joined the still growing family house, which owns by then already 13 ha of vineyards in Charly-sur-Marne, at the beautiful river banks of the Marne. Today, Champagne Baron-Fuente is the owner of 38 ha of vineyards and the brand Baron-Fuente is owned by the Baron family.
The house Baron-Fuente is actually managed by Ignace and Sophie. Ignace, assisted by his chef de cave Orlando, is in charge of the elaboration of all the champagnes.
