CHAMPAGNE WINE REGION

It is said that a champagne bottle is popped open every second of the day somewhere in the world.

The last 20 years has seen unprecedented growth in export sales, led by the UK along with mergers and acquisitions of brands and estates by the big Champagne houses. Whilst auspicious brands as Dom Pérignon, Krug, Pol Roger and Louis Roederer's Cristal rightly command attention and respect, the very essence and spirit still remains with the growers and the quality of the vineyards.
