The Sourdet-Diot Champagne House is situated in the heart of the prestigious Marne Valley.
Raymond Sourdet planted the first vines in the'60s and sold his harvest to the large Champagne houses. Gradually the family vineyard expanded. Today it comprises 8 hectares of vines on southeast facing slopes, providing ideal grape-growing conditions.
In 1980 Patrick and Nadine Sourdet decided to produce their own Champagne from their own grapes and so they installed a traditional Champagne press. At this time 50% of the grapes were sold to large Champagne houses and the remaining half was kept to make their own Champagne. By 1990 this became 100%, leading to an extension of the cellars and the creation of a wine-tasting cellar.
In 2003 Patrick and Nadine's second daughter, Ludivine, and her husband, Damien, joined the family vineyard. Ludiine helps her mother in the office while Damien helps Patrick in the vineyard.
Sourdet-Diot is a member of the French Federation of Independent Winegrowers.
