Our beautiful love story with Champagne began four generations ago in 1929. My great-grandfather Léopold Orban, a pioneer in the champagne-making process in the village, decided to start producing the wine. He was followed by my grandfather Gaëtan Orban and my father Pol Orban. A lineage is born!
Our vineyard lies in the heart of the Marne Valley, the birthplace of champagne, 15km from Epernay, champagne’s capital city.
The village is atypical from several points of view, enjoying ideal exposure and sunshine, exceptional clay-limestone soil and a perfect microclimate to grow Pinot Meunier, our vineyard’s flagship grape variety.
Today, still spurred on by the desire to satisfy you, you will find in the Francis Orban Champagne range a natural elegance and an inherited, authentic and genuine skill specific to our family and our terroir.
Francis Oban was born in 1980 in the former “Coronation” city of Reims.
With both his parents being Champagne growers, it was only natural that he took the ideal training path, studying oenology and viticulture.
On completing his course in 1999, Francis joined the family business to perfect his knowledge and contribute what he had learned during his studies.
In 2007, he decided to produce his own brand of Champagne, the fruit of his inherited family expertise and his own experience. The story continues…
