Champagne House Jacquinot et Fils, has one the deepest cellars of all Champagne Houses. The estate dates back to 1764.
Pierre Jacquinot was initially a farmer and grape grower, he started the family vineyard just after the First World War, where he was injured and became a grape broker.
In 1929 he set up his own pressing centre and started to make his own wines. His two sons, Jacques and Jean-Guy, joined the company and together they founded the brand "Champagne Jacquinot et Fils". The company is founded in 1947 and established in Epernay since 1949. Jacques Jacquinot was responsable for the sales activities and Jean-Guy took care of the development of the vineyard, which today covers 17 hectares.
The Champagne of Jacquinot is of the highest quality possible. Jean-Manuel Jacquinot, son of Jean-Guy, is an Oenologist and in charge of the production since 1998. Both Jean-Manuel and Francois Nicolet, Jacques’s son-in-law, are still running the estate.
