C'est au coeur du prestigieux terroir de la Vallée de la Marne qu'est né le Champagne Sourdet-Diot, plus précisément à La Chapelle Monthodon.
C'est dans les années 60 que les premières vignes ont été plantées, par Raymond SOURDET. Sa récolte était vendue aux grandes maisons de champagne.
Petit à petit, le vignoble familial s'est agrandi. Aujourd'hui, on compte 8 hectares de vignes bénéficiant d'une exposition sud-est, idéale pour l'épanouissement des raisins.
Sourdet-Diot Champagne was born in the heart of the prestigious Marne valley, or more precisely at La Chapelle Monthodon.Raymond Sourdet planted the first vines in the 60s and sold his harvest to the large Champagne houses.
Gradually, the family vineyard expanded. Today it comprises 8 hectares of vines on southeast facing slopes, providing ideal grape-growing conditions. In 1980, Patrick and Nadine Sourdet decided to become harvester-makers, that is to say elaborate their own champagne on their property from their own grapes. The installation of a traditional press and cellars was to follow.
At this time, 50 % of the grapes were sold to the large Champagne houses and the remaining half was conserved on the property to elaborate Champagne.In 1990, the grape contract with Veuve Cliquot was not renewed. Since then, the entire harvest has been conserved and elaborated in our cellars, leading to an extension of the cellars and the creation of a wine tasting cellar.
This new step has enabled us to receive our clientele on the property, where the majority of the sales are now made.In 1992, we were listed as a “welcome point” on the Champagne Tourist Route.
Also as members of the French Federation of Independent Winegrowers, our love and passion for both winegrowing and the elaboration of Champagne, provides you with a guarantee of exceptional quality. Since 2003, Ludivine (their second daughter) and Damien (her husband) have joined the family vineyard. Ludivine helps Nadine in the office and the reception, while Damien helps Patrick in the cuverie and the vineyard.
