Origins and mission

Teamwork is a byword for the Champagne Houses — pulling together to overcome whatever problems nature throws at them, pooling their wits to remain at the forefront of innovation. Teamwork is the glue that holds it all together, cementing a close working relationship between shareholders, winegrowers, employees and local authorities. Teamwork is the secret to delivering what the customer wants: a great wine that is accessible to all wine lovers, beginners and connoisseurs alike.

130th Anniversary

To celebrate the 130th anniversary of the Union of Champagne Houses, the Presidents of the 80 Houses comprising its membership invited contributions from leading decision makers in the wine sector. Delegates included French Ministers of State, EU commission representatives, French Members of the European Parliament and representatives of professional bodies.
