Created in honour of general Edouard de Curières de Castelnau in 1916, the Champagne de Castelnau became famous during the first world war. From 1925 and for three generations, the Champagne de Castelnau is a family owned Epernay. Very much in vogue for much of the TWENTIETH century, in particular in the years ’30, the Champagne de Castelnau is, all over the world, the guest of honor of royal families and circles of the French army. In 1962, Reims, a dozen of wine-growers combine their vines and their skills to create the Regional Cooperative of the Wines of Champagne, the co-operative that, in 2003, buy Champagne de Castelnau. Today, the cooperative has one of the largest vineyards of the Champagne region and made of the Champagne de Castelnau, its brand most representative.
