The champagne house Diebolt-Vallois is to be found in Cramant, a village in the "Côte des Blancs", whose chalky soil makes the perfect home for chardonnay vines. It is certainly one of the finest terroirs in the Champagne region and is the realm of "blanc de blancs" champagnes (champagnes made from white grapes - chardonnay).
Diebolt-Vallois champagnes are the progeny of a united family: Jacques Diebolt and Nadia Vallois are helped by their two children, Arnaud and Isabelle, who are taking an ever increasingly active part in the running of the estate.
The Diebolt family has lived in Cramant since the end of the 19th century, and the Vallois family has been cultivating vines in Cuis since the 15th Century. Although Jacques Diebolt started working with his grandfather, it was not until 1978 that the estate underwent a sea-change with the extension of the estate and the construction first of all of cellars, and then a winery.
