Champagne Jacques Picard
Independent winegrowers for 3 generations, we perpetuate our know-how by mixing tradition and modern viticulture, while respecting the land and the vine.
It also seems essential to us to preserve the quality and characteristics of our champagnes year after year.

History of the Maison Jacques Picard
C ' It was at the end of the 1950s that grandfather Roger Picard, then Mayor of Berru, planted his first vines, on his plots which had recently received the appellation Champagne. In the early 1960s, Jacques Picard, our father, joined the estate and produced his first champagnes under his own name.
Champagne Jacques Picard was born.
Jacques Picard has made numerous investments over the years with the aim of perpetuating the operation and controlling the quality of production. The vineyard is developed, the cellars are enlarged in the basement and the building undergoes multiple extensions. Maison Jacques Picard then carries out all the stages of champagne production on the family farm, from planting to marketing.
Sylvie and Corinne, the two daughters of Jacques Picard, took over in the 1990s. Together, accompanied by José, Corinne's husband, they continued the development and modernization of the farm, respecting traditions and concern for the quality that characterizes Maison Jacques Picard.
