The family Gremillet has been a family of winegrowers since the 18th century. In 1979, Jean-Michel Gremillet decided to create his own Champagne.
His first steps were towards the export and more particularly towards the diplomatic network, with no more than fifty embassies and consulates around the world selecting Gremillet for their prestigious receptions.
Jean-Michel's dream has become reality: his the two children, Jean-Christophe and Anne, have now joined the company together with their spouses, respectively Karine and Stéphane. The family is incredibly proud of what has been accomplished and together they are working hard to continue the company's success.
The estate is located in Balnot sur Laignes (45 km from Champagne’s historic capital Troyes) and next to Les Riceys, the largest Champagne growing municipality and the only one producing the region’s third A.O.C. (Appellation d'Origine Controlée): Rosé des Riceys.
Covering 40 hectares, the majority of their vines are planted in the Côte des Bars. 75% of the vines are Pinot Noir planted in limestone-clay soil on steep, sun-drenched hillsides, bringing out the full strength and fruity flavour of this grape variety.
