Terroirs et Vignerons de Champagne

Terroirs et Vignerons de Champagne – a new giant of sparkling

30.12.2021, News

As a result of the merger, which officially took place on December 15, CRVC-Champagne Castelnau and Center Vinicole-Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte (CV-CNF) joined forces to create a new sparkling wine company – Terroirs et Vignerons de Champagne.

The agreement is extremely ambitious in its scope and objectives and brings together about 6,000 individual growers who cultivate about 3,000 hectares of vineyards. For comparison, the total area of vineyards in Champagne is about 34,000 hectares.

Such a huge number of grapes will allow Terroirs et Vignerons de Champagne to potentially sell 24 million bottles of champagne a year.

Véronique Blin, president of Centre Vinicole-Champagne Nicolas Feuillatte, noted: “The creation of this new group is a reflection of the continued consolidation of more and more players in Champagne as well as the need for a restructuring of the cooperative model. It is a response to the downward spiral in vineyard sales observed since the last crisis in Champagne in 2008 where the appellation saw the loss of 40 million bottles on the French market.”

Emmanuel Comyn, president of CRVC-Champagne Castelnau, added: “This movement will make it possible to place additional value on the concepts of cooperation and sharing, two values that are more important than ever in today’s world. By becoming one of the three major operators in Champagne, we now have the power to valorise the cooperative model in every single way – an incredible opportunity.”
