Champagne for connoisseurs who
are ready to move to the next level
We represent small niche champagne houses with "burgundian"
terroir-based approach and uncompromising quality.
What we do
We love life. Good wine. Delicious food. Interesting journeys.
We love to make everything around us bright beautiful.
That's why we visit the best restaurants on the planet and go to the most interesting eno-gastronomic locations.
This Project is about Love. Love for Life and People.
We are not selling champagne that brings the most profit.
We sell champagne that we believe in ourselves. The wine that we drink and love.
How we choose champagne for our portfolio
1
We know what's going on in the region
In order to keep abreast of the latest information and trends in the region, we visit Champagne several times per year, meeting face-to-face with all our producers.
2
We stand of the shoulders of wine giants
We never stop in professional development and actively use ratings and books by recognized "champagne experts" - Michael Edwards, Tyson Stelzer, Peter Liem, Richard Juhlin. And yes, we look up to Jancis Robinson, Antonio Galloni and Dr. Jamie Goode - because they are indisputable authorities. And they have good taste.
3
We are constantly in touch with top champagne producers
First, it is an opportunity to get insider information long before the rest of the market, and second, personal touch and reputation are the key to success in a region such conservative as Champagne.

Our wine journeys
Several times a year we visit legendary wine regions - Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Piedmont, Alsace. Bespoke program, the best restaurants, an exclusive reception in wineries and champagne houses. Each tour is an adventure that does not leave indifferent even those who "have seen everything and been everywhere".
Tastings and wine dinners
We regularly meet the indoor hedonists club to enjoy the best samples of champagne (and not only!) under ideal gastronomic accompaniment.
With the right combination of wine and cuisine, you can start and finish the evening with champagne. We practice it all the time. We also organize "Champagne night in the Opera", take our friends to jazz concerts in medieval - fairytale St. Emilion and listen to music in the box together with the owners of the best wine and champagne houses in the world. We do what is beautiful. What we like ourselves.
Drinking our emotions with the best wines at the same time...
