Portraits of winegrowers

Tasting is a concept born from the friendship of two winegrowers, as different as they are complementary!

Champagne Roland Philippe Père & Fils was created in 1952 by André, for his son Roland and his grandson James. André created the “La Grappe” cooperative in Châtillon sur Marne with his friends and cousins. The first press of the cooperative was also in the courtyard of the family farm!
The vineyard, HVE and VDC certified, extends over 6 hectares, only in the village of Châtillon sur Marne. The 3 Champagne grape varieties are represented through the house's cuvées, with a greater proportion of Pinot Meunier.
Since the creation, these winegrowers from father to son have been growers-cooperators.
Pressing, vinification and bottling are done at the cooperative and the bottles are then collected for ageing, riddling and disgorging.
45,000 bottles are produced each year, sold mostly to private customers. Since 2019, the house has been exporting to Italy and Iceland.
For the moment it's a women's story, thanks to Edwige, 4th generation of the house, and her daughter Chloé, 5th generation, before her brother Théo joined the mother-daughter duo.

Ludovic took over as head of the family business in 1986.
He is the third generation and today operates 9 hectares of vines in the heart of the Marne Valley. The farm is located in Villers-sous-Châtillon, a few kilometers from Châtillon sur Marne.
In 2020, the vineyard obtained HVE certification.

As a grower-handler, he masters all the stages of the production of his cuvées, from harvest to marketing, and thus continues the family tradition.
Currently, 45,000 bottles are produced each year, sold mainly to private customers.
In the future, Ludovic dreams of seeing his daughter Lucie take up the torch!
