Haton Family

Basic Info

Demonstrating willingness and boldness, Octave Haton founded the Champagne House in 1920. His son René succeeded him and purchased some additional vineyards. Today, the Haton family is part of the top 30 producers of Champagne in volume. This 4th generation family-owned estate is located in the Marne Valley, 7 kms from Epernay in a town called Damery. The family currently owns 20 hectares of vineyards and purchases grapes all over Champagne, including Grands Crus and Premiers Crus. They cover about 80 crus including 8 Crus from their own Estates. Each cuvée of their Champagne is elaborated by blind tasting from father and son to maintain a high quality level and consistency over the years. The wine is judged on the quality and not necessarily on the popularity of the cru. Each grape varietal and plot is vinified separately in more than 100 stainless steel tanks before the final blending.
