has made its own wines since 1932. It is located in the heart of the vineyards of Cramant, a Grand Cru classified village in the Côte des Blancs. The first champagne produced by its founder, Fernand Bouquemont, received a gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole in 1932.
After the Second World War, Fernand Bouquemont was joined by his son-in-law, André Bonnaire. André, who came from a family of Champagne wine growers for several generations, focused all his attention on growing the vines and expanding the vineyards, assisted by his son, Jean-Louis.
Today, the adventure continues with over 22 hectares of vineyards planted mainly with Chardonnay in the Champagne grands crus. After creating new momentum by modernizing the production facilities and enhancing Champagne Bonnaire’s standing (increasingly recognized by fine wine lovers), Jean-Louis Bonnaire, currently CEO of the company, watches over the company’s reputation with a love of the industry. The new generation, in the form of Jean-Louis’ two sons, is now in place: Jean-Etienne is in charge of production and Jean-Emmanuel is in charge of sales. Champagne Bonnaire looks forward to celebrating its centenary in 2032!
