Grand Est, France
Hong Kong S.A.R.,
Champagnes Piper-Heidsieck, Charles Heidsieck and Rare Champagne are the very first wineries in Champagne to achieve B Corp certification. Based in Reims in the heart of the Champagne region of France for many centuries, the Houses have been part of the family-owned EPI Group since 2011. This certification illustrates the commitment of all three Houses to improving both their social and environmental impacts on the planet, representing a crucial step in an evolution towards a positive and purpose-driven business model. The Houses value their innovative winemaking practices in order to produce wines of the highest quality whilst acknowledging a global responsibility to positively impact the environment and society through sustainable practices. This philosophy is based on sustainable viticulture, reduction of both carbon footprint and waste, and the promotion of diversity, inclusion, and the quality of life at work. The Houses wish to inspire others in the larger wine industry as well as in the Champagne region to join the movement, and to use business as a force for good.
