The Comité Champagne is the trade association that represents the interests of independent Champagne producers (vignerons) and Champagne Houses. Its mandate is to promote the vines and wines of Champagne through a broad remit that includes: economic, technical and environmental development; continuous quality improvement; sector management; marketing and communications; and the promotion and protection of the Champagne AOC across the world.
The Comité Champagne is the trade organisation established by statute to manage the common interests of growers (‘vignerons’) and Champagne Houses (négociants/producteurs’).
The Comité Champagne is a joint trade association, established as a semi-autonomous public body in 1941.
The Comité Champagne was one of the first-ever regional wine committees created in France, the result of joint action at a local level. It is widely regarded as the model that others have since followed.
