Champagne Pommery is located in Reims in the Champagne region of France. The Champagne House was founded as Pommery & Greno in 1858 by Alexandre Louis Pommery and Narcisse Greno. Alexandre's widow, Louise Pommery dedicated the Company to Champagne production soon becaming one of the region's largest Champagne brands. In 1874 Madame Pommery, affectionately nicknamed "la Dame aux Roses" (the Lady of the Roses) created the first vintage "brut" in the history of Champagne. Today this revolutionary dry style is now the standard in Champagne. Pommery is currently owned by Vranken of Épernay who also owns Heidsieck & Co Monopole Champagne.
