Champagne House Sourdet-Diot is born in the heart of the prestigious Vallée de la Marne or to be more precisely in La Chapelle Monthodon. Raymond Sourdet planted his first vines in the 1960's.
After some years, the family vineyard expanded. Today it comprises 11 hectares of vines on the south-east facing slopes, which provide ideal grape-growing conditions.
In 1980, Patrick and Nadine Sourdet decided to become an independent winegrower, in order to elaborate their own Champagne on their own property and from their own grapes. They installated a traditional press and cellars. At that time, 50% of the grapes were sold to the largest Champagne Houses and the remaining half was conserved on the property to elaborate Champagne.
In 1992, the Champagne House was listed on the Champagne Tourist Route as a “Welcome Point”.
As members of the French Federation of Independent Winegrowers, their love and passion for both the winegrowing and elaboration of Champagne, guarantees an exceptional quality. In 2011 they started to work with a modern press of 6000 kg instead of their traditional press of 4000 kg. But it is still there for you to see.
The Tasting room has been refurbished in 2012 and the familiy Sourdet-Diot will be very pleased to welcome you for a Tour and Tasting!
