A vigneron is a 'grape grower', someone who owns and takes care of vineyards. Pruning, maintaining the vines: it's all done to make sure the grapes are in good condition by the time they are picked. Historically, Champagne has many vignerons who sell off their vintage to the large domaines, the 'grandes marques'. 

Nowadays, more and more grape growers chose to use their vineyards, which in many cases have been in the family for generations, for producing their own wines: these are called 'vigneron-' or 'grower champagnes'. The champagnes imported by l'Atelier du Champagne come from vignerons, families with just a few hectares of land, who do not buy any fruit from others.

Vignerons tend to make dry champagnes of grapes from specific vineyards; in their cellars you may find both oak barrels, inox tanks and concrete eggs for fermentation and aging of the wines.

Vignerons

Meer en meer telers kiezen ervoor hun wijngaarden, soms al generaties in familiebezit, te gebruiken voor eigen wijnen, die dan ook 'vigneron-' of 'grower champagnes' worden genoemd. De champagnes die l'Atelier du Champagne importeert komen van vignerons, families die vaak enkele hectaren land hebben en geen fruit van anderen inkopen.

Vignerons neigen naar droge champagnes van druiven uit specifieke wijngaarden; in de kelder staan naast eiken vaten en rvs tanks dikwijls andere tanks, zoals een betonnen ei, voor vergisting en rijping van de wijnen.
