A Family Winery in the 6th Generation
Pierre Clément inherited hectares of vines from his father-in-law and set up the Champagne Météyer winery. Today, Franck Météyer and his wife, Anna, run the winery passionately. Their vineyards are located on the sunkissed, gorgeous hillsides of Trélou-Sur-Marne. Thus, they provide constant attention and manual care to the harvest throughout the entire year. You can discover their vineyards in all four seasons – spring, summer, fall, and winter. Moreover, Champagne Météyer is the first independent winegrower to receive the “Pierre Cheval de l’Embellissement” award by UNESCO. The soil of the vineyard benefits from its unique climate and geographic location. Hence, this uniqueness adds to the freshness, typicality and finesse qualities of their Champagne wines. The limestone subsoil provides the perfect growing conditions for optimum ripeness of the grapes.

The Champagne Météyer winery promotes wine tours, wine tastings, and events. They provide support to visitors by helping them organize their visit to the winery. By visiting the winery, you will explore their Champagne House delivering quality for wine lovers. The UNESCO World Heritage features the hillsides, houses, and the cellars of Champagne. You will discover the diversity of the winegrowers’ work through a guided tour in the unique museum. This museum exists in the XVIIIth century vaulted cellars.
Regional Exploration and the Saint Vincent Festival
