Flavigny, Champagne • France

In 1986, Eric Dhondt and Edith Grellet decided to stop selling their grapes to négociants and formed the winery Dhondt-Grellet. Their son, Adrien, at just 25 years of age, took over the winemaking and is quickly bringing his family’s wines up to another level.

The vineyards are situated primarily in Grand and Premier Crus of the Côte des Blancs, namely Cramant and Chouilly, but they also have Chardonnay planted in the Côte de Sézanne (south of the Côte des Blancs), parcels in Cuis (Vallée de la Marne, south of Épernay—mostly Pinot Meunier), and in Avenay-Val-d’Or (Grand Vallée, north of Épernay—mostly Pinot Noir).

Assisted by his sister, Alice, Adrien has made the conversion to full biodynamic viticulture. Organic farming, old vines, and low yields are the keys to the delicious success of Dhondt-Grellet wines.
