Risk-taking and Champagne making go hand-in-hand, but anyone who has closely watched the movements of the top Champagne houses will know that this alone must be coupled with excellent taste and timing to produce the most luscious of grapes.
The House of De Venoge, which began life way back in 1776, is no stranger to these qualities. At a tender age, Henri-Marc de Venoge demonstrated considerable assurance in risk taking and acquiring enough information to make crucial decisions pay off. By 1825 he was well on his way to making an international name for himself, when he set up on the hallowed location of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ.
With links to Brussels and a history of trading with London, Munich, Antwerp and Ulm, the House of Venoge is one that has spread its wings across an expanse of culture. Adding to the prestige, De Venoge is responsible for the creation of the illustrated Champagne label: something that has long since been interpreted by every single Champagne house and wine company trading.
