Champagne Yves Ruffin
Vallée de la Marne and la Montagne de Reims

Champagne Yves Ruffin was founded in 1971 by Yves Ruffin and his wife Odette Pitois. Both were born in families of winegrowers. From the start, they stood out from other winegrowers by choosing organic viticulture. Among thousands of winegrowers at the time, there were only 4 visionaries to take this decision in order to defend common values and the environment. They started with a 3 hectares (7.4 acres) vineyard in Avenay-Val-d’Or. By 1990 the family bought one-half hectare (1.2 acre) of vineyard in Tauxières-Mutry. They now have land in both Vallée de la Marne and la Montagne de Reims. After Yves’s retirement, his son Thierry Ruffin takes over the maison and starts modernizing it while perpetuating the know-how that made the maison stand out: organic viticulture, vinification in oak barrels, traditional pressing, longer ageing. His wife Sylvie and son Antonin are continuing the family business and the traditions of the maison.
