The Lacourtes and the Godbillons began by growing grapes. Just like the generations before them, they sold all their crop to the big and famous champagne houses.
Was it a passion? Maybe... but more than anything else it was sheer hard work. They were often in the vineyards from 5 in the morning until 8 at night! And the children would join them to help after school.
A reason for living? Most probably... With the ultimate objective being the honor of buying a plot of vines as soon as they were able to.
In 1947, shortly after returning from the war, they began a new adventure: producing and marketing champagne under the names LACOURTE-LABASSE and GODBILLON-MARIE. They were soon filling their customers' car boots with bulk orders!
They gradually set up their business and established the LACOURTE-GODBILLON brand.
