Since the 17th century, the Baron family owned a vineyard in Charly sur Marne, in the west of the Champagne area. Dolorès Fuenté is the daughter of Spanish immigrants. Gabriel Baron and Dolorès Fuenté met at the local dance hall and got married in 1961. As a symbol of their union, Gabriel Baron and Dolorès Fuenté founded the house Baron-Fuenté in 1967. The first bottles were produced and sold directly from the house. Since then, the company kept on developing year after year. Today, the champagne occupies 38 hectares of vineyards and the brand Baron Fuenté is owned by the Baron family.
