Champagne, lying to the east of the Paris region, is one of the historic provinces of France.
Thanks to a sparkling wine to which the region has given its name, the word Champagne is known worldwide – even if many of those who know the drink do not know exactly where it comes from.
Champagne wine was first produced within its three main towns – Reims, its largest and home to the Montagne de Reims, famed for its Pinot Noir; Epernay, the capital of the Côte des Blancs, the area most renowned for its Chardonnay; and Ay, the town situated on the border of both the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.
Founded in 1837 by Henri-Marc de Venoge, located in Epernay, Champagne de Venoge has been keeping its leadership:
- 1st House to release illustrated labels in 1838,
- Special Cuvée des Princes launched in honour of the Princes of Orange in 1858,
- One of the founders of the “Syndicat des Grandes Marques” in 1872,
- 1st “Maison de Champagne” to produce a Blanc de Noirs in 1988.
