As someone who has personal experience working for family, and has observed other examples of this unique experience, I can tell you I am SO impressed by what the Moutard Family has been able to accomplish. Most family projects have 2 maybe 3 relatives working, and usually on separate aspects. This is a polished wine producing house, spanning two regions, and even into the world of distilling. All while living in a small town and working closely with nearly a dozen family members. Clearly I am curious about the interpersonal dynamics here, but the wine also impresses! 

The history of Famille Moutard in Champagne began in 1958 when Lucien Moutard married into a family whose ancestors first cultivated vines on these hills in 1642.
