History

1858 : Gaspar Péters, native of Luxembourg, married a Miss Doué, owner of vineyards in Le Mesnil and started operation with about 2 hectares. Like their son, Louis Joseph Péters, in addition to their breeders and merchants status, they sold their whole harvest to trading businesses.

1919 : Camille Péters, son of Louis Joseph was one of the first growers of the Champagne region to decide to harvest, handle and sell bottles under his name.

1929 : Despite the global crisis, Camille Péters decided to develop marketing and started to sell his production under the brand name "Camille Péters".

1930 : Camille Péters acquired 2.5 hectares at a place called : "Les Chétillons".

1932 : Pierre Péters, eldest son of Camille, age 12, started to attend his first exhibitions alone and to develop sales.

1944 : Camille Péters died suddenly and Pierre took over operations.

1946 : Release of the first vintage under the brand Pierre Péters (1944). After his mother died in 1949, Pierre supported the education of his younger sisters. For 35 years, he devoted his life to develop the brand and its vineyards in the "Côte des Blancs".

1967 : Following extensive health problems, Pierre transferred the family estate to François, his second son, who ensured the development and sustainability until 2008. During these 40 years, he increased the surface area to reach 17.5 hectares and he dramatically improved sales growth in France and abroad. His work has enabled Champagne Pierre Péters to be among the largest Champagne grower-producers.

2007 : Rodolphe Péters, oenologist-winemaker, joined the family house after 12 years of experience in companies close to the world of wine and Champagne. He took control of the family estate in 2008 and started to focus on the winemaking tool in an even more qualitative way. He has also paid particular attention to the development of the reputation and image of the family brand in France and abroad, which now represents over 80 % of the volume of bottles shipped.

2009 : Release of the vintage "Rosé for Albane". A small revolution for our family domaine which has always produced Blancs de Blancs Champagnes !
