Champagnes & Chateaux, a leading specialist wine merchant in the UK since 1989, is bringing its exclusive portfolio of quality wines direct to the consumer for the first time, perfect for Christmas and New Year celebrations.
A small close-knit team, Champagnes & Chateaux can offer one-to-one, personalised service, ensuring outstanding customer relationships.
Owned by brothers Eduardo and Víctor Hernáiz since 2012, they have released two pairs of white and red from the Finca La Emperatriz estate, which is named after the original owner, the once Empress of France, Eugenia de Montijo. They are the first winery in Rioja to fully embrace the Bordeaux-like “Chateau” concept of single top wine from a single vineyard and a ‘second wine’ to accompany it. They use the Gran Vino descriptor (like Bordeaux’s Grand Vin) and have received the Viñedo Singular certification – the highest classification in Rioja Alta – given to just 50 wineries with small, old plots with limited but high quality production, which must comply with a series of strict standards to prove their quality.
Managing director and founder of Champagnes & Chateaux, Christophe Galez explains: “Working with small family-owned producers, our focus has remained the same throughout the 30 years that we’ve been supplying independents and top restaurants. We sell quality wines with great character and individuality, which also represent great value for money. We pride ourselves on being able to offer outstanding wines that aren’t available in retailers and can now offer consumers an authentic taste of something different via our new online shop with delivery direct to their door.”
