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.
