Wine growers since the 18th century, the Maison Jeeper story truly began in 1949.
It was then that Armand Goutorbe, son of Victor Goutorbe, on his return from the Second World War, decided to produce and sell his Champagne.
Armand Goutorbe christened his brand Champagne JEEPER, with an eye to making himself stand out from the many wine growers of the region also named Goutorbe and in reference to the Jeep bestowed upon him by the local authorities to help him ascend the vineyard slopes with ease.
Champagne Jeeper largely carries out its operations at the Faverolles and Coëmy site, near Reims.
The production is harvested from 35 hectares of proprietary vineyards and around 180 hectares of grape suppliers’ land, which produces approximately 2,500,000 bottles each year.
