Champagne producers over générations…
After the second global war, in the 50's, Marcel MENU started to plant the first vines.
In 1953, his daughter, Bernadette MENU gets married with Lucien CHARTON from Méry-Prémecy, then they take care of a part of the partenal vineyard in Vrigny.
Later, they plant on Mery-Prémecy's soil the first plants of vine in the village. Throughout the years, the estate grows and takes care of 5 hectares of vineyard, the couple was selling 20 000 bottles with its own brand CHAMPAGNE CHARTON-MENU.
Their son, Raynald, was always working with them in the vine growing. In 1976, he decides to continue his parents' activity accompanied by his wife, Sylvie. All together, they created CHAMPAGNE CHARTON- GUILLAUME brand and sold 40 000 bottles per year.
The future of the estate is well prepared because their children Anne-Laure and Bertrand are working on to bring a complementary vision on the commercial part and the vine growing part.
