TEN21 - Celebrating 10 amazing years
Our Prestige Line - the epitome of Champagne
"While tasting mass market products, I never found the quality I was expecting from a Champagne. So, I set out to create my own"
Martin A. Konorza, Owner & Président
The proud Gryphon Theodore serves as the guardian of special moments and our strong values. He makes sure that we keep everything tidy around here, too.
Theodore originates from the De Watère family, having served as their crest since 1,086AD, when the first ancestor was officially documented.
Sustainability and eco-sensitivity are just common sense to us. How else could you find the true natural soul of Champagne?
Instead of just reducing the emissions from tractors, we don't even have any - we employ horses. This keeps the soil nice and airy and the air clean, allowing our vines to freely develop to their full potential and our Champagnes to truly shine.
Naturally, pesticides are a No-No for us!
Constantly in pursuit of the true soul of Champagne, we hand make limited production Premier Cru Champagnes from the pure grapes that are as close as possible to the original Champagnes when they became world famous: before the anonymous industrial mass production.
One key aspect is our respect for our Champagnes. We give them all the time they need to develop in 2,000 year-old caves under the hills of the Vallée de la Marne - until they're ready to show the world what real Champagne tastes like.
The resulting Champagnes entice into a story of happy moments, tickling the taste buds into unknown territory - tasting as pure, fruity and elegant as we wished all Champagnes did.
They are truly worthy of our statement that we keep in mind: "De Watère proves why Champagne is the King of Wines." And we say that with a proud smile.
