Located in the heart of Reims, the production site of the company extends for five hectares and has three levels of cellars in which the wines can develop at their best and reach their complete maturity. Castelnau is a brand specialized in long aging on yeasts. The Maison produces 600,000 bottles from 900 hectares divided between 150 different crus.
Created in honor of General Edouard de Curières de Castelnau in 1916, Champagne de Castelnau became famous during the First World War. Since 1925, and for three generations, Champagne de Castelnau has been owned by a family from Epernay.
Very popular for a good part of the twentieth century, particularly in the 1930s, Champagne de Castelnau is, all over the world, the guest of honor of royal families and circles of the French army. In 1962, in Reims, a dozen winemakers combined their vineyards and their skills to create the Regional Cooperative of Champagne Wines, a cooperative that, in 2003, bought Champagne de Castelnau.
Today, the cooperative has one of the largest vineyards in the Champagne region and has made Champagne de Castelnau its most representative brand.
