The Maison Gamet is a story of back & forth between two villages from Champagne Region: Mardeuil & Fleury-la-Rivière. François Gamet, native of Fleury-la-Rivière comes down of his village to join and helping his grand-mother Victoire out, on the farm located in Mardeuil. Philippe, the son of François, born & raised in Mardeuil within the farm, will then meet Fabienne, his future wife, on the lands of Fleury-la-Rivière; A small village strewn on the heights of the Marne Valley, where the heritage of millions years still reveals the past within sandy soils, where you can find again shells between two vines.
Fabienne Heucq of her maiden name, is also born within a winegrower family. Her father Robert Heucq was a beloved man and a winemaker, who has also contributed to the growth of the Champagne Region, especially in the development of Fleury-la-Rivière, as he was part of the cooperative founder.
Married in 1992, Fabienne & Philippe have linked their know-how and their legacies to finally found their own domain. Today joined by their children, Jean-François, oenologist and Marianne, a young entrepreneure, the Maison Gamet is at the crossroads of the generations.
Owner of a winery and a farm, the Maison Gamet aims today a new dynamism where the savoir-faire of the land is the new focus. From Champagne to the development of mouth products, many projects are on the way. We won’t give any further details, but stay tuned!
Artisan & Winegrower in Champagne and also ‘Récoltant-Manipulant’, the Maison Gamet is proud of its heritage and its history. Beginning with the tenacity of the grandmother of François Gamet, Victoire Garnier has contributed to improving the growth of small winegrowers after the Second World War by burnishing the know-how of the artisans in Champagne. Followed by two passionate grandfathers, François Gamet and Robert Heucq two figures of the wealth enrichment of the current Maison Gamet.
François, Philippe & Jean-François - Grandfather, father and son - are sharing today the same ‘savoir-faire’, at the same time, but with a different approach: one with nostalgia, the second with wisdom and Jean-François with ambition, accompanied by his sister, Marianne, the thinking head of the family.
The know-how of a good winemaker does not stop only with the elaboration of the wine, but the passion to transmit the art of working and to preserve its inheritance
