Francis Orban vineyard lies in the heart of the Marne Valley, the birthplace of Champagne, 15km from Epernay, Champagne’s capital city.
This Estate is atypical from several points of view: enjoying ideal exposure and sunshine, exceptional clay-limestone soil and a perfect microclimate to grow Pinot Meunier.
Spurred on by the desire to satisfy every Champagne lover, you will find in the Francis Orban Champagne range a natural elegance and an inherited, authentic and genuine skill specific to the Pinot Meunier and Francis Orban’s terroir.
