Champagne Palmer & Co opens new winery

Champagne Palmer & Co has unveiled its new state-of-the-art winery, located outside of Reims and close to the house’s grand and premier crus vineyards in the Montagne de Reims.

The new bioclimatic winery, designed with sustainability in mind and to maximise natural light, has a storage capacity of 21,352 hl and will house Palmer’s reserve wines. It also uses the natural slope of the land to facilitate flow by gravity.

“This new site perfectly reflects Palmer & Co’s commitment to following the path of innovation and sustainable development,” said CEO and winemaker Rémi Vervier. “Every detail has been studied in depth to ensure that the building meets the highest quality and environmental standards.”

Champagne Palmer & Co was founded in 1947 and today has 415 hectares of vineyards, comprising about forty crus, with over 200 hectares classified as Grand and Premier Crus in the Montagne de Reims.

All Palmer & Co wines are aged on the lees extensively – at least four years for the Brut Réserve, six to eight years for all vintage cuvées, and up to ten years or more for magnums and larger format bottles.
