Gratien & Meyer is a winery specializing in the production of fine bubbles in Saumur and champagne in Épernay.

Founded in 1864 by Alfred Gratien, the company set up its cellars in ancient tufa stone galleries on the Saumur hillside.

These stone quarries, which were used to build local monuments, were bought by Alfred Gratien, who became the owner of 20 hectares of vines and 5 kilometers of galleries.

Today, with over 150 years of tradition, Gratien & Meyer is a resolutely forward-looking company, combining expertise and innovation in the production of its fine bubbly wines and champagnes.
