THE VINEYARD

At Veuve Clicquot, the grapes from different varieties and plots are kept separate to preserve the characteristics of each terroir. They buy in their grapes from trusted growers in the Reims region.  The AOP Champagne appellation covers 32,000 hectares and 319 villages. It remains widely regarded as the ‘Mecca’ for sparkling wine production throughout the world. There are 5 wine producing districts within Champagne, each of which grow varying quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Champagne is one of the northernmost wine producing regions in the world and as such has a cool climate. This means that the grapes ripen to different degrees each year. They are mixed with previous harvests in order to achieve a consistent flavour, which is why most champagne is non-vintage.
