There are around 3000 small champagne producers, growers and similar, but only about 300 so-called “houses”. The “houses” are the big, well-known brands but it is mainly among the others, the small producers that you today find the most exciting champagnes. The market is of course dominated by the marketing-driven big and famous brands but if you want to have a great champagne experience you often get more character packed in a bottle from the growers.

BKWine Magazine’s reporter Sven-Olof Johansson went on a voyage of discovery among what Franska Vinlistan, a specialist importer, offers and found many goodies: Delicious growers and small-house champagnes from a specialist importer.

Travel: Come on a bubbly wine tour to Champagne this autumn.
