The story of Champagne Rapeneau is one of passion, dedication, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. With roots tracing back to over a century, this champagne is a testament to the rich heritage of one of the world's most prestigious wine regions.

In 1901, Ernest Rapeneau laid the foundation of what would become a sparkling legacy in the village of Hautvillers, the birthplace of champagne. It wasn't until 1927, with the viticultural boundaries of Champagne being established, that Ernest began to specialise in the champagne trade. This decision marked a pivotal moment, allowing him to select his wines with greater precision and elevate the quality of his offerings. Recognised for his love for champagne wines, Ernest witnessed the acknowledgement of champagne wines' supremacy with the inception of the “Champagne Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée” (AOC) in 1936. This milestone bolstered the brand's reputation, prompting him to expand his range and distribution network.

The Rapeneau brand is synonymous with family and tradition. Over four generations, each member has found their unique place within the business, working harmoniously to preserve and enhance their invaluable heritage. Their collective aim has always been to uphold the traditions while adapting and innovating to meet contemporary tastes.

His expertise, combined with the trust of their partners, has enabled the company to source grapes from over a hundred wine presses, producing champagnes that appeal to a diverse range of palates.
