The Bonfils family has dedicated its life to the vine for six generations. From Algeria to the Languedoc,

by way of Roussillon, there are now 3 generations working hand in hand.

History of the Bonfils Family


Joseph BONFILS was forced into exile in Algeria where he met his future wife Honorine Dorveaux. It was Honorine who launched the agricultural farm in the Oran region with numerous vines. She planted relentlessly, without knowing that she was growing the Bonfils' heritage.

As an experienced terroir selector, Jean-Michel BONFILS chose the Domaine de Cibadiès (Capestang) for the development of its slopes, offering sunshine adapted to each variety.


On the initiative of Laurent, Jérôme and Olivier, the 5th generation of the family, Vignobles Bonfils is making a strategic shift to bottling, favouring a move upmarket in their wines.

Acquisition of Château Villerambert (Caunes-en-Minervois) in the Minervois PDO, an exceptional property with 11 types of terroir, including pink marble.


Opening of a new wine tourism establishment: Château St-Pierre de Serjac (Puissalicon). On the vineyard side, the cellar masters play on the influence of the Faugères terroir and plant a wide variety of grape varieties.


Respect for the environment and preservation of the architectural heritage is more than ever at the heart of the values of Vignobles Bonfils, with the reopening in early 2021 of the emblematic estate in La Clape: Château Capitoul.
