CFGV or the Compagnie Française des Grands Vins was founded over a hundred years ago and specialises in the production of exceptional sparkling wines, across a range of different brand names. Their core brand lines are Charles Volner, Opéra, Veuve Amiot and Muscador and they are famous for having Eugene Charmat as one of their founders, the man who created the double fermentation process.
CFGV is a leading producer in the French sparkling wine industry, playing a key role in its history, at the root of the industrialisation of the industry. They are the whole of France's leading sparkling wine producer, producing over 80 million bottles a year and this makes up over 18% of sparkling wine sales in total. They produce everything from the most basic, budget-friendly sparkling wines to high-end specialties and they are a recognisable force in the marketplace. At The Fine Wine Company we recognise the importance of CFGV in the sparkling wine industry and have examples of their range for our customers to try.
