Our family-owned Champagne House has evolved over the years. Several generations of winemakers have gone above and beyond thanks to their will and ambitious choices. Gérard’s great-grandfather was already innovative by choosing to reject the high-density planting system that was commonplace at the time.
Instead, this visionary decided to increase the space between the vine rows to facilitate access by horse and plough. André Vincent, Robert Beurton and many others have, in their turn, left their own mark on the family legacy.
This legacy has also been influenced by some iconic female figures. Eugénie and Yveline, Benjamin’s great-grandmother and grandmother, respectively, played a prominent role in the Champagne House’s development during the two World Wars. With bold choices, courage and determination, these strong-spirited women successfully ran the domaine.
Following in their footsteps, Benjamin’s mother, Marinette Vincent, has also dedicated her whole life to the winery guiding the destiny of the House with her infallible courage and natural authority.
A growing winery
Gérard and Marinette’s marriage started a new and exciting era for Champagne Beurton & Fils. They combined their vineyards, shared their savoir-faire and spent the following 40 years tirelessly working to develop the wine domaine. The recognition of a job well-done, coupled with their hard work for their craft, as well as some wonderful opportunities enabled the family to significantly expand their vineyards while also developing their grape pressing service.
Their work ethic, discipline, high standards and above all, passion, have permitted them to build solid foundations for Champagne Beurton & Fils and develop its state-of-the-art winemaking facilities. With Benjamin and Katy, a new generation is now leading and bringing fresh energy to the House’s activities both in France and internationally.
