The pioneer spirit
The Taittinger family has always shown its pioneering spirit. From its starting point in Champagne, its creation of the Champagne House’s unique style and its expansion overseas right through to its showcasing of contemporary art and fine cuisine. It is this same spirit which led Taittinger to create “Domaine Carneros” in the heart of the Napa Vallley, California in the 1980s. It produces a sparkling wine by using the same method of blending Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as is done in Champagne. It is now enjoyed across the whole of the United States. More recently, in 2015 Taittinger became the first champagne house to create a vineyard in the United Kingdom. It has planted 30 hectares of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier in Kent, South-east England. The first bottles of sparkling wine are eagerly anticipated to be ready in time for 2024.
