Champagne Gaston Chiquet
Today, for over 80 years, the brand Champagne Gaston Chiquet is still lead by the family. The two brothers, Antoine and Nicolas Chiquet, and the next generation, Marion Chiquet (Antoine’s daughter) work 23 hectares of vineyards situated primarily in the precious perimeter of Dizy, Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ and Hautvillers.
Eight generations have passed since Nicolas Chiquet planted his first vine in 1746. In 1919, brothers Fernand and Gaston Chiquet – winemakers born and bred – came together to create their house, CHIQUET Brothers. They were pioneers in Champagne, among the very first winemakers to take the initiative, bold at the time, to keep their grapes, turn them into Champagne and sell their own product. In 1923, they were awarded their first medal in PARIS, then their gold medal in EPERNAY.
While the techniques have been improved, the tradition remains the same.
