About

Simply Champagne

Simply Champagne offers an exclusive selection of champagnes, made by family-owned, out-of-the-way wineries, where the history, passion and know-how is as interesting as the champagne itself. 

By selecting and curating our exclusive champagne range for you, we support independent growers whose dedication to quality and sustainable farming practices matches our own.

If you’re a champagne enthusiast – or would like to become one – come join the journey!

Our experiences that made us who we are

We love a good champagne. We only showcase producers with a passion for soil regeneration and sustainability. The grower monitors the soil, fruit, the process, and human contact, right through to the bottling stage. We love connecting with the growers and the champagne enthusiasts, seeing first-hand the pleasure they bring is highly motivational and satisfying for the champagne maker.

We love the Champagne region and the many thousands of independent producers, as well as the diversity they bring. We remove the hard work of finding the best champagne in a region of 4,300 independent growers by personally selecting those champagnes for you on site. We present to you the rare and the hard-to-find champagne that you are looking for, whose growers have been able to make a true expression of the local climate, the soil, the vines and all the family knowledge gained through generations of winemaking.

Focusing on small independent producers simplifies operations and removes a lot of costs – joint marketing fees, no middlemen, etc. All those savings are passed along to our customers and reinvested with the stakeholders – growers, partners, and all players we interact with in the responsible  sustainable champaign making ecosystem.

As a result, the value brought is the best quality products – where quality is defined by the process, the grapes and the growers themselves – for a fair price while reinvesting in the local stakeholders. So in the end, you are buying an excellent bottle of champagne and reinvesting in the growers and champagne ecosystem!

Our Values

We are driven by strong values and committed to deliver where is matters

  • Passion: our passion for good work, sustainable practices, people and quality is a cornerstone of we do
  • Entrepreneurship: we push the boundaries of everything that we do
  • Integrity: we work with respect, honesty and transparency, with highest ethical and quality standards

 

What we did first

To get out of this challenging situation of looking for a champagne that matches our liking among the 4,300 independent champagne producers, we first selected an excellent grand cru champagne house, and learned from the very best.

We regularly complete our portfolio by personally visiting each selected champagne grower and winemaker on site each year. Our visits include working in the vineyards, blind tasting, blending trials, meeting new regionals players and visiting new cellars each year. It is a learning that spans a lifetime. Every step of the way is absolutely worth it and helps us move forward to push our goal to support the growers and their responsible farming ethics, and to bring these quality out of the way champagnes to our customers.

Sustainable Practices

We believe that each and everyone can have a positive impact on gas emission levels. With our partners, we’re working towards a more sustainable future, respectful of our finite quantity of resources, whether those resources are readily and freely available or not.

We look at our impact through the products we import. With our partners, we strive towards high standards of social and environmental performance.

SimplyChampagne curates exceptional champagnes that are representative of the quality of the terroir (soil and area) they come from and of their producer’s commitment.

Among the 4,300 independent champagne producers in Champagne, France, we select champagnes made from grapes farmed through sustainable, biological, or even biodynamic methods fermented using natural yeasts and produced with no acidification or additives.
