Jean-Rémi Mourad grew up in Carcassonne, between two Mediterranean cultures, from one bank to the other, from Lebanon of his ancestors to the south of France where he was born.
After studying mathematics and environmental sciences, he specialized in soils and plant organisms, and quickly decided to work around vine and olive tree cultivation as an obvious for this lover of Mediterranean region.
This lead him to obtain an oenologist national diploma at Toulouse engineering School ENSAT, in 2003.
After graduating , he worked 5 years in Corbières, as a technical salesman for Celliers d’Orphée, and then he created is own wine agency “Fontemour” in 2007.
