Gadroy family, the producers of Champagne Didier Gadroy & fils, has a history that dates back 11 generations.
Our vineyards are located around Bonneil, France. They have belonged to our family since 1788, when Nicolas Pierre Gaillard began this vocation in honor of the birth of his first son.

For over two centuries, our family steadfastly pursued their passion for champagne. While Nicolas Pierre Gaillard has been the forerunner of our lineage, each generation, subsequently has brought their own unique personal touch to what our champagne is today.

Moreover, our champagne remained the best kept secret until the 1990’s. Indeed, before that, our grandfather told us that our customers were the ones that personally travelled to our vinery in search of the best champagne. Not everyone has the possibility to do so these days!

La passion pour notre travail conservera sa force tant que le travail reste dans la famille

From the French Revolution to the turmoil of the Great War, our family had to face some of the biggest challenges in history of the Champagne region!

Indeed, the precursor of our lineage, Nicolas Gaillard began the champagne vocation only a year before the French Revolution, in 1788. Georges Gaillard, our great-grandfather, experienced the hardships of World War I, which were very present in our region.

Albert and his wife Huguette Gaillard, our grandparents, guided the vineyard through the difficulties of the economic crisis and that of the Second World War. They also expanded our vineyard. Didier and Angeline Gadroy (our parents) managed the vineyard and began publicly marketing champagne in the 1990s.

Today it is our turn to continue and intensify the work begun by our ancestors.
