In 1772 Philippe Clicquot founded a winery called Clicquot. In 1798, his son, Francois, who inherited his family business, married Barbara Nicole Ponsardin. After the death of Francois in 1805, the young widow of Barbara decided to continue the work of her late husband. A visionary woman has become a driving force behind the prestigious and successful brand that was renamed Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin in 1810. Line by line, Madame Clicquot used her skills to develop an exceptionally vineyard area of 515 hectares in the very heart of the Champagne region. Today in France and around the world, the Veuve Clicquot brand represents a contemporary and courage with a focus on quality and expertise.
