We are a small champagne producer with 3.4 hectares of vines. Our grapes are pressed, vinified and sold on site. We are open year round (except August) and are always delighted to welcome guests for a tour and degustation of our champagne if we're home (please call ahead!). We look forward to sharing our news and stories with all, especially those interested in the lifestyle of a small and traditional vigneron champenois. « less

My girlfriend and I dropped in on the Rodez Family having called about ten minutes ahead to ensure that they would be around. After giving us a tour of the cellars in perfect English, Jessie kindlu invited us into her kitchen, where we shared a bottle of champagne with her and her husband, Thierry. We ended up buying a couple... More

We visited early in the new year when I was expecting most of the Champagne houses to be closed. I had arranged our visit beforehand by email with Jessie and I would recommend people do this. What can I say other than it was perfect. Jessie showed my wife and I around this small, family run house and caves, spending... More

This is our second visit to Champagne Thierry Rodez & we like it so much we could not visit the region without a visit to Thierry & Jessie. They are warm friendly hosts & have plenty of tips on this most sacred tipple! They always share a glass or two with us & their champagne is exceptional value for the... More

The Rodez family made us feel very welcome as they showed us their champagne house. We read the reviews on TripAdvisor and contacted Jessi by phone. She was very accommodating and we made arrangements for our visit the same day. She speaks wonderful English and explained everything to us about the farming, gathering, processing, and storing of the champagne. The... More

My wife and I went to Reims in June 2012 and had decided to mainly visit smaller independent Champagne houses and our visit to Thierry Rodez didn't disappoint. We were greeted by Jessie who was very friendly and welcoming. We were given a tour of the production area and their cellar and Jessie very openly told us about the life... More

Having read the previous reviews, I was really keen to visit this independant Champagne house whilst we were in the area, situated in one of the Grand Cru villages - and we were certainly not disappointed. Following a brief introduction, (en francais) Thierry took us on a tour of the production area, showing us his traditional wooden press (their grapes... More

...the previous commentators have said. If you want to hear a true story about the making of champagne in good old days (and partly still at this place), this is the champagne house to go. The feeling we had sitting there with the family (or at least three of them) after the short but informative tour was just lovely. All... More
