Tradition. Modernity. Respect.
Three words that you may not think fit together, but they perfectly define the approach of the family-owned Autréau vineyard. We are delighted to include their Champagne in some of most luxurious Champagne gift hampers. It is perfectly balanced, refreshing and a glowing gold in colour.
Made for generations to “celebrate the outstanding events of life”, impress your special guests or revel in style with this unique sparkling wine.
Let us tell you more about its history.
Champagne that combines tradition and technology
The land owned by the Autréau family has been used to grow wine grapes since 1670 and was one of the first to follow Dom Perignon's lead after his effervescent discovery. Current owner, Eric Autréau, is passionate about maintaining traditional methods and has the utmost respect for the land on which his father’s original brand was created and established. With Eric’s son now working within the family business too, the knowledge of the past continues to be shared, but with a fresh new approach. He is passionate about engaging the technological advances in viticulture and in the creation of Champagne – including automatic hexagon bottle holders to rotate the bottles and computer-modelling of corkage. All elements of the process remain in-house, ensuring the family oversee every step from vineyard to bottle. There is no interference from laboratories or chemists.
With Autréau Champagne, you get the very best of traditional and modern methods.
Champagne with a sustainable future
The vineyards in Champillon overlook the city of Epernay, well-known as the capital of Champagne. There, they grow three grape varieties on five different terroirs to create the combinations of the nine different champagnes they offer. The Autréau family are committed to evolving – adapting to the environmental challenges and changing climate they see affecting the soil, weather, and temperature. With awareness comes responsibility, and with every sip of this refreshing beverage, you can feel reassured that Autréau is doing all it can to work sustainably, recognised through certification since 2017 of “High Environmental Value (level 3)”, as well as being recognised as maintaining “sustainable viticulture in Champagne”.
