    Meet our Grower: Hervieux-Dumez


    Meet our grower, Champagne Hervieux-Dumez!

    Bruno Dumez is the current vigneron of his family’s vineyards, working alongside his brother and son in the Montagne de Reims region of Champagne. We like to call him a “perfect Frenchman” because he has two passions in life: being a Champenois and an avid bicyclist!

    He is honored to be one of 26 members in the elite Special Club of Champagne. Special Club members must grow their own grapes and make their own Champagne that originates from a single harvest. The group meets annually to blind taste several wines and only the very best cuvées are accepted and allowed to be bottled in the iconic special club bottle.

    Watch the video above for a quick look at the vineyards and caves of Champagne Hervieux-Dumez!

    The Best Way to Celebrate Everyday

    The FC Club is…

    EXCLUSIVE: Every cuvée we import is exclusive to us, meaning you won’t find these Champagnes anywhere else in the U.S.!

    CUSTOMIZABLE: We select Champagne specifically for every member based on their feedback and preferences.

    EDUCATIONAL: Every bottle arrives with detailed tasting notes and “geeky details” to elevate your drinking experience.

    The best way to CELEBRATE EVERYDAY! With shipments arriving every other month, you’ll always have bubbles on hand to toast to life’s memorable moments.
