Champagne Jeeper: The Story

30.10.2018Champagne Jeeper: The Story

Although Champagne has been produced on their site since the 18th Century, the story of Maison Jeeper truly begins in 1949 and what a story it is……. It was then that the owner Victor Goutorbe’s son Armand, returned from the Second World War during which he had worked for the French Resistance. He had been captured by the Gestapo and tortured. Both his legs were broken, which gave him a problem travelling around the precipitous slopes of the vineyard at Faverolles and Coëmy. Fortunately the American Army, who Armand had worked for, kindly supplied him with one of their Willys Jeeps, which allowed him to ascend the vineyards with ease. He quickly became known locally as “Monsieur Jeeper” and having an eye to marketing and wishing to present a distinct image that would stand out from the crowd, he changed the name of the House to Jeeper. Today Jeeper still operates from Faverolles and Coëmy, near Reims. The businesss is now owned by Nicolas Dubois and Michel Reybier. Their joint policy is to produce Champagnes of absolute excellence. Although relatively new to the British market, these wonderful wines with their distinctive bottles have already made their mark, with the Rosé being selected by British Airways for their First Class and Business Class Lounges. Worsley Wines are very pleased to stock the complete range of Jeeper Champagnes.
