The origins of the Morlet family in the Champagne region of France are difficult to precisely retrace. It is certain, though, that the Morlet family has been cultivating vineyards in Avenay-Val-d'Or since the early 1800's. Although the family always made its own wine, the majority of the grape production was sold to the Grandes Maisons of Champagne. At that time, the market for selling grapes was poor. In order to supplement the family's income, Auguste Morlet, an orphan from an impoverished background, worked as a gardener. In addition, he planted, in between his own grape vines, vegetables that he sold each year at the weekly farmers market. It was one of Auguste's sons, Gaston Morlet, who is truly the founder of Champagne Pierre Morlet. Throughout the ups and downs of nature, wars, famines, and economical hardships, Gaston focused the activities of the family toward viticulture, becoming the family's exclusive occupation. They eventually created their own label, and began making their own wines. Read more »

  • Trying to decide what bottle of wine to bring for Thanksgiving this year, could use a few suggestions. Pretty much the normal Thanksgiving dishes i.e. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, the usual. I'm thinking a Zinfandel would be the way to go, open to all comments.Thanks! Read More
