Quality since 1989
In 1989, Christophe Galez has recently graduated from university. His business course has brought him to London for 2 years.
He’s back in his native Champagne region when he meets Alain Thiénot, an already accomplished entrepreneur in Reims who set up his own Champagne House in 1985.
By 1989 Champagne Thiénot is going from strength to strength and setting up a branch in the UK would contribute to the international development of this young House.
Champagnes and Chateaux is born.
More than 30 years on, Alain Thiénot is still Chairman of his flourishing family business, supported by his children Stanislas and Garance who joined him in the early 2000’s. Their boutique wineries in Champagne, Bordeaux and California enjoy tremendous success throughout the world.
Meanwhile, Christophe and his team proudly celebrated the 30th birthday of C&C in 2019, which over time has become a leading specialist wine merchant in the UK.
After over 30 years, our focus remains the same at Champagnes and Châteaux – working with small family-owned producers and selling quality wines to our customers.
Thank you all so much for your support.
We are a small close-knit team of 8 with fantastic team spirit and joie de vivre. Our customers know us all and we pride ourselves on being able to provide a one to one very friendly service to our customers. We are a small business and everyone mucks in!
